Abstract

This study assesses how work as a family professional is uniquely enhancing and stressful, from the perspective of family professionals and their spouses. Both family professionals and their spouses report significantly more enhancers than stressors. Family professionals report significantly more enhancers and stressors than their spouses. There is substantial agreement between spouses and family professionals about the major family life enhancers and stressors. Implications for training, policy, and future research are discussed.
