Abstract

One objective of the present study was to determine if job stresswas related to negative affect and job satisfaction. Another objectivewas to examine if social support from one's supervisor could reduce theimpacts of job stress. A related objective was to document any negativeimpacts from receipt of support. One hundred and eight Hong Kongkindergarten principals responded to a questionnaire containing thevariables of interest. The results showed that the principals foundtheir work to be moderately stressful, that informational support couldbuffer the impacts of job stress, and that there were only weak adverseeffects associated with receipt of support.
