This master thesis is concerned with occupational load at employees of the Austrian child and youth services. The aim is to ascertain, if personal or job-related factors lead to load. 114 persons, who are employed in the mobile services of the child and youth services, were interviewed. 109 completed questionnaires were applied to the evaluation. 3 stress scales (based on Frese 1991) and the ?strain screening for human services? (BHD) by Hacker & Reinhold (1995) were used for the survey. The scores of the interviewed persons in the stress and load scales (BHD) were set in correlation with the demographic, personal, job-related and client-related information and evaluated with a bivariate correlation analysis, to find out possible coherences. Afterwards a few stepwise multiple regression analysis was consulted for the statistical evaluation, to avoid inter-correlations. The central results of the regression analysis reveal, that beside job-related factors (dissatisfaction with the financial remuneration, high weekly working time, one or repeated job changing, training opportunities), also person-centered and demographic factors (marital status single, age and sex) are predictors for occupational load.
