Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The Impact of Prison Social Climate on Corrections Fatigue Syndrome
by Mikolon, Tricia M., Ph.D., Regent University, 2017, 206; 10281958
Abstract (Summary)

Denhof et al. (2014) defined corrections fatigue as “a collection of negative an inter-related consequences upon the health and functioning of corrections professionals and the workplace culture as a whole due to exposure to traumatic, operational, and organizational stressors and their interacting consequences” (p. 5) resulting in socially dysfunctional ideology and negative changes in personality, health and functioning, resulting in an average age of mortality established at 59 years (Brower, 2013a, 2013b; Cheek, 1984). Group differences were examined utilizing multivariate statistical tests with archival data. Findings indicate that variables within the correctional environment (age, tenure, gender of staff, security level of the institution and perceptions of assaults and safety) influence the experience of corrections fatigue symptoms. Counselor, administration, and staff implications are discussed.
