Why is this research being done?
We are examining aggression as it relates to burnout in psychiatric hospital employees.   Burnout can be defined as “the end in coping with chronic stress” (Jennett, Harris Mesibov 2003) and is particularly relevant in high intensity high energy environments. Specifically, we are interested in collecting data from mental health professionals who work on specialized care units designed for individuals with Intellectual Disability (ID) and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). We collect data through a brief survey that takes between 5 and 10 minutes to complete.  

Who is being asked to take part in this research study?
All staff members who work directly with and engage in patient care which includes but is not limited to Behavioral Support Staff, Psychiatric Assistants, Student Behavioral Assistants, Safety Specialists, Social Workers, Counselors and Psychologists, and Nurses.

What procedures will be performed for research purposes?
If you decide to take part in this research study, you will participate in a brief multiple choice survey that should take roughly 5-10 minutes to complete.
