Summary
Research evidence identifies numerous negative consequences that result when conflict occurs between the different roles in a person's life. There is also a growing body of evidence that suggests that there are potential benefits to combining multiple life roles. Twenty two social work practitioners completed a postal questionnaire, which was designed to provide information on the work-life balance experiences of social workers who are combining work and study. This paper reports on this research and discusses how the findings relate to current research on work-life balance, as well as previous studies on social workers combining work and study -- Abstract
