Abstract: A survey (N = 715) examined organizational and life issues that affect overall job satisfaction of daily newspaper journalists. The Herzberg motivational-hygiene theory is used to examine intrinsic or motivational factors (perceived organizational support; social support) and extrinsic or hygiene factors (work-family conflict; role overload; job demands) that affect overall job satisfaction. Results indicate that perceived organizational support and social support create satisfaction, and work-family conflict, role overload and job demands influence dissatisfaction. Additionally, 25.7 percent of journalists in this study said they intend to leave newspaper journalism. Open-ended responses indicated that the primarily reasons for leaving include industry issues/job satisfaction. In essence, the tangential elements that tend to wear on journalists – deadlines, long hours, clashes between work and family – appear to take their toll and create dissatisfaction but are not driving journalists from the workforce. Primarily, journalists intending to leave the profession are frustrated with fundamental issues that comprise an enjoyable work environment – support and encouragement.

"Health Risk Information, Health Involvement, and Life Satisfaction: An Exploration of the Effects of Portrayals of Health Risks in Television Medical Dramas on College Students’ Life Satisfaction" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Dresden International Congress Centre, Dresden, Germany, Online <PDF>. 2019-08-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p93101_index.html>

Abstract: The results of previous studies on the relationship between television exposure and life satisfaction are often mixed. Negative, positive, and curvilinear relationship had been reported. In an attempt to detangle this problem, this study explored the relationship between overall television viewing and life satisfaction among college students, as well as the effects of exposure to the depiction of health risks in television medical dramas on viewers’ perceived health risks and life satisfaction. Health involvement was also included to see if it affects the relationship of television medical drama exposure to perceived health risks and life satisfaction. Results showed that overall television viewing was negatively associated with life satisfaction, and exposure to TV medical dramas tended to lower viewers’ life satisfaction, and health consciousness was important for understanding life satisfaction. Exposure to televised portrayals of health risks in television medical dramas tended to produce different results between viewers’ perceptions of health risks to themselves and to general others.

Abstract: Police in schools work in settings culturally distinct from the street, perform non-traditional tasks, and often adopt roles as mentors and teachers. The differences in the social and physical environments of schools may lead school resource officers (SROs) to perceive their work differently. In one prior study, SROs reported higher job satisfaction compared to patrol officers, yet more work is needed to explore differences in how SROs and patrol officers experience their work. Job satisfaction is especially important given its correlation with officer wellbeing and work performance. In this study quantitative and qualitative responses from surveys of 320 patrol officers in a Midwestern police agency were compared to those from 182 SROs in four Midwestern states. Respondents identified factors that would improve their job satisfaction and there were similarities across both groups, though SROs were more concerned about levels of training and community participation.

Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine whether supportive interactions on social networking sites mediate the influence of social networking use and the number of SNS friends on perceived social support, affect, sense of community, and life satisfaction. Employing momentary sampling, the current study also looked at the relationship between supportive interaction and immediate affect after the interaction over a period of five days. An analysis of 339 adult participants revealed a positive relationship between supportive interaction and positive affect after the interaction. A path model revealed positive associations among the number of SNS friends, supportive interactions, affect, perceived social support, sense of community, and life satisfaction. The number of SNS friends significantly predicted positive psychological outcomes only when it was mediated by supportive interaction. The dimensions of perceived social support predicted distinct psychological outcomes: companionship support predicted life satisfaction while esteem and appraisal support predicted sense of community.
