Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
In this chapter, we review the literature on the relationship of work-family conflict with health outcomes and well-being. We discuss the meaning of work-family conflict and then present a theoretical model that depicts the psychological process by which work-family conflict affects negative emotions, dissatisfaction with life and its component roles, health-related behavior, and physical health. We conclude with suggestions regarding the development of a future research agenda.
