Title:
Work-related well-being in the Prison Service: a national study
Authors:
Kinman, Gail; Clements, Andrew James ( 0000-0003-0265-0376 ) ; Hart, Jacqui
Abstract:
There is evidence that prison officers in the UK experience challenging working conditions, but little is known about their well-being at a national level. This mixed-methods study considers whether the Prison service is meeting several benchmarks for the work-related well-being of its staff. It further explores personal experiences and outcomes of violence and aggression at work and perceptions of justice and support. Extracts from interviews with prison service staff are presented and discussed. The methodological, ethical and practical implications of the research are considered.
