Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Social workers' health and well-being in the workplace has received a great deal of attention in the international literature. Since social work in the field of health has experienced many changes in Saudi Arabia over the past two decades, this study attempts to investigate personal experience among hospital social workers. The study used the quantitative approach and gathered its information by a survey that was distributed to 260 practitioners. The conclusion highlights a considerable level of detrimental work-related reactions (e.g., frustration) in the individual Saudi social work practitioners.
