In the article, ““The relationship between work-family conflict, correctional officer job stress, and job satisfaction,” Armstrong examined the interplay between work and family conflict as related to correctional officer job stress and job satisfaction. This study looked closely at the challenges associated with achieving a successful balance between work and family demands, particularly in light of the unique demands of officers’ work in direct contact with an incarcerated population in a confined space. The study surveyed a broad population of officers from 13 different state-operated adult correctional facilities. The authors found that officers who reported higher levels of conflict between work and family demands had lower levels of job satisfaction and higher levels of job stress. Family support, and supervisory support, had positive impacts on levels of job stress. The study recommends that, as a matter of correctional facility security, it is critical for supervisors to take notice of the emotional and cognitive state of their subordinates to ensure a high level of job performance and professionalism.
