dc.description.abstract Correctional officers in correctional institutions play a significant role in creating and maintaining the environment within the prison. As a result many issues related to correctional officers have been examined, for instance researchers found that correctional officers experience excessive stress that leads to physical illness, cost money, family problems or inability to perform duties appropriately (Finn, 2000). Most studies examining causes and negative consequences of correctional officers stress were conducted in Western countries, few studies have examined stress and stress related problems among correctional officers in other countries. Thus the present study examined the sources and the extent of stress among correctional officers in South Africa and the effect of these on job satisfaction. en_US
