Abstract:   (130 Views)
Objective: The objective of this research was to examine the impact of solution-oriented group counseling on enhancing job burnout and resilience among working women who seek assistance from counseling centers in Bushehr.
Methods: The research employed a semi-experimental method with a pre-test and post-test design, including a control group. The statistical population for this study consisted of all working women who sought counseling services in Bushehr during the first six months of 1402. The sample size consisted of 30 individuals who were selected using purposive sampling and assigned to either the experimental or control group. The research utilized the solution-oriented group counseling protocol developed by Riahiniya (2013), as well as the job burnout questionnaires created by Moslesh (1981) and the resilience questionnaire developed by Connor and Davidson (2003).
Results: The results indicated that solution-oriented group counseling led to improvements in all components of job burnout, specifically emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and individual performance, for the experimental group compared to the control group. Furthermore, the experimental group demonstrated improvements in various aspects of resilience, such as competence, personal strength, trust in personal instincts, tolerance of negative emotions, positive acceptance of emotions, safe relationships, and control of security, compared to the control group.
Conclusions: . In conclusion, this research suggests that the implementation of solution-oriented group counseling can contribute to the enhancement of job burnout and resilience among working women.
