GOMEZ ORTIZ, VIVIOLA; PERILLA TORO, LYRIA ESPERANZA  and  HERMOSA RODRIGUEZ, ANGÉLICA MARÍA. Moderation of the Relation Between Job Strain and the Dissatisfaction of University Professors: The Role of Conflict and of Facilitation Between Work and Family. Rev. colomb. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.1, pp.185-201. ISSN 0121-5469.

The study evaluated whether conflict and facilitation between work and family moderate the relationship between job strain and psychological health, and whether the levels of conflict and facilitation vary depending on sex. A cross-sectional study was carried out with 302 professors from public and private universities in Bogotá, who answered questionnaires evaluating job strain, work-family and family-work facilitation as well as conflict, anxiety, depression, psychosomatic symptoms, social adaptation and burnout. Results indicated that the work-family conflict moderates the relation between job strain and burnout, while the family-work conflict moderates the relationship between job strain and depression. In both cases, higher reports of job strain and conflict were linked to greater experiences of dissatisfaction.
