Although much has been written about coping strategies and processes, there has been a lack of integration among the researchers studying family coping, individual coping and organizational support for coping. As a result, these three fields have developed in relative isolation, despite the obvious overlap in their content. It is the intent of this report to provide a holistic picture of how strategies applied by the key stakeholders in the work life equation the individual, the family and the organization help employees cope with work life conflict. Accordingly, the key objective of this report is to identify coping strategies that are associated with lower levels of the four forms of work life conflict: role overload, work-to-family interference, family-to-work interference and caregiver strain.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
