An exploratory analysis was conducted to determine whether a professional training program for rehabilitation practitioners that focused on core skills and competencies, might have some beneficial effects on perceived levels of job related stress and tension, and feelings of positive and negative affect. Results of the analysis indicated that training participants showed significant improvements in perceptions of job stress, tension, and positive affect compared with a group of control respondents who did not take part in the training. There were no changes in negative affect. Problems and limitations of the study are addressed and the importance of further understanding of the complex dynamics of job stress in rehabilitation professionals is emphasized.

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.
