Student stress and well-being has become an increasing concern for universities both locally and internationally, with an increased interest in the prevention of academic burnout and the promotion of academic engagement due to their respective negative and positive influence on students.
Accordingly, the Job Demands-Resource (JD-R) model was developed as a theoretical framework incorporating environmental characteristics that predict symptoms of engagement and burnout in individuals.
A major criticism of the JD-R model is its lack of consideration for the impact of personal resources on individual well-being.
Emanating from this concern, the current study used the Conservation of Resources (COR) theory to empirically investigate whether the personal resource of Psychological Capital (PsyCap: Self-efficacy, Hope, Optimism and Resilience) interacted within the health impairment and motivation processes of the JD-R model.
More specifically, it examined whether PsyCap mediated the relationship between demands/resources and burnout/engagement within a South African university environment, making it a unique and novel research study.
