Social support from work and family domains as an antecedent or moderator of work-family conflicts?


Seiger, C P; Wiese, B S (2009). Social support from work and family domains as an antecedent or moderator of work-family conflicts? Journal of Vocational Behavior, 75(1):26-37.

Abstract

On the basis of Conservation of Resources theory, we investigated how social support from supervisor, co-workers, life partner, and family members is associated with work–family conflicts in N = 107 working mothers. We used data from a cross-sectional questionnaire and a standardized diary to examine two possible forms of interplay: (a) Social support as an antecedent of work–family conflicts, and (b) moderating effects of social support on the relationship between domain-specific strain and work–family conflicts. Overall, results favored social support as an antecedent of work–family conflicts.
