Predictors of Vicarious Trauma Beliefs Among Medical Staff
The purpose of this research was to investigate personality differences in vicarious trauma beliefs and to explore the interaction effects of personality and coping with these beliefs. A total of 131 medical staff completed measures of personality, coping, and trauma beliefs. The regression analysis emphasized the importance of personality traits (extraversion, neuroticism, and conscientiousness) as predictors of dysfunctional beliefs. The results confirm the hypotheses that vicarious traumatization is determined by individual variables and that positive reinterpretation can buffer the impact of work environment when it comes to personal well-being.
