- Life Domain Balance
- Work-life conflict and health
- Managing mutiple roles
Our lives consist of different life domains (such as work, family, leisure, volunteering) in which we assume different roles. Our roles in these life domains facilitate each other, but can also result in conflicts since our resources (time as well as energy) are limited. In my dissertation, I analyzed these kinds of conflicts and their association with health in a number of longitudinal and cross-sectional studies.
I am currently working on “Managing multiple roles,” which is a subproject of the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) “LIVES – Overcoming Vulnerability: Life Course Perspectives.” This multi-method subproject investigates the above-mentioned conflicts as well as personal goals and self-regulation.
