Keywords

Abstract

This study assesses how work as a family professional is uniquely enhancing and stressful, and whether enhancers and stressors are correlated with marital and family quality. Findings strengthen the idea that there are marital and family life enhancers and stressors uniquely associated with work as a family professional. The reported presence of certain stressors and enhancers was found to be correlated with marital quality and family life satisfaction. Implications for future research and practice are discussed
