Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this quantitative correlational research study was to determine the extent of association between stress and emotional intelligence among direct-care workers who assist adults with developmental disabilities in the Illinois area. The final sample consisted of 117 direct-care workers who assist adults with developmental disabilities in groups homes located in the southern suburbs of Illinois. Important positive relationships existed between stress and emotional intelligence, which revealed that direct-care workers with high stress levels have lower levels of emotional intelligence, and direct-care workers with low levels of stress have higher levels of emotional intelligence. The data findings also revealed that general mood is a substantial predictor of direct-care workers’ stress. The recommendations that materialized from the study could be important to leaders, scholars, and future research.
