The following paper reports on a component of a study conducted to survey burnout and coping among employment service case managers in the Australian state of Queensland. The current paper reports the coping strategies used by employment service case managers, in an attempt to ascertain the role of coping in burnout and to identify strategies that could be beneficial in reducing burnout levels in this population. Significant gender differences in coping styles were found and an association between burnout and Escape-Avoidance behavior was identified for both female and male respondents. Implications for programs for employment service case managers are discussed.
