An Exploration of Supervisor Mistreatment and Respect
MetadataShow full item record
Positive and negative supervisor treatment is examined in two samples of graduate students. Using an internal validation approach (confirmatory factor analysis), positive and negative treatment were examined, result indicate they are related but distinct constructs that represent different factors. Using an external validation approach mistreatment negatively predicted well-being in Sample 1 (but not Sample 2), satisfaction and intentions to stay (both samples). Positive treatment predicted mental well-being in Sample 1 (but not Sample 2), and satisfaction and intentions to stay (both samples). Implications, limitations, and future directions are discussed.
