Professional women's construction of competing work and non-work demands: A tension perspective

Guo, Kai Yan (2016) Professional women's construction of competing work and non-work demands: A tension perspective. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


In this study, how professional women perceive and cope with the tensions arising from the competing demands of their work and non-work lives is explored. By uncovering the cognitive dynamics underpinning professional women’s ongoing efforts of coping with the enduring tensions, the findings of this study suggest a more refined conceptualization of competing work and non-work demands than previous theories have envisioned.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
