Abstract

This study explored individual differences predictors of the positive facet of professional quality of life, i.e., compassion satisfaction (CS), in health care practitioners. A cross-sectional design was employed, based on 89 mental health care providers and 93 medical professional, drawn from 7 major community hospitals and 6 private clinics situation in Northern Israel. CS was significantly predicted by emotional competencies, positive affect, and problem-focused coping. In addition, problem-focused coping mediated the relationship between emotion abilities and CS. The data are explicated and discussed in light of the literature and contemporary accounts of professional quality of life.
