  • Emotions and professional burnout of public administration officials: testing the shape of relations in transverse and longitudinal models
    The connection of positivity, i.e. the proportion between positive and negative emotions, and occupational burnout can take the form of a curvilinear shape. Moreover, from a theoretical perspective, it is a cause-and-effect relationship in which positivity is proximal and burn-out - a distal dimension of professional well-being. Previous studies, however, were mostly carried out in the transversal plan and tested straight line relations. The aim of the study was to examine the relationship between positivity and professional burnout, taking into account lateral and longitudinal plans on the example of a group of public administration officials.
  • The usefulness of an optical meter to assess human exposure to fine dust contained in indoor air
    An important issue in the health risk assessment is the measurement of individual exposure, also for atmospheric air pollution with fine dust. Such possibilities give relatively easy to use optical meters. The aim of the work was to assess the possibility of using an optical AM520 meter to measure individual human exposure to PM2,5 and PM10 fine dust, contained in enclosed spaces, by determining the calibration coefficient and assessing the compliance of the measurement with the reference method.

  • Coping with stress caused by mobbing in the workplace: umbrella review
    Knowledge about victims' reactions to stressful events is important because it allows those responsible for counteracting mobbing to choose the right strategy for intervention when it appears in the organization. Early intervention is important because mobbing is not subject to victim control, which has few ways of dealing with it. People experiencing mobbing have knowledge about common reactions to this phenomenon and can help by limiting these reactions and facilitating the use of seeking help. The purpose of this review was to determine whether and which styles and strategies for coping with stress can play an important role in the process of experiencing mobbing in the workplace. The review includes articles published in the years 1984-2018. The results of the research may indicate that in the face of mobbing all forms of coping are indifferent, and sometimes they can even worsen the situation of the victim. This is because experiencing mobbing is a highly traumatic situation that victims experience for a long time. Therefore, mobbing can be classified as objective, universal stressors, which most of the individuals, regardless of their perception, will put into a state of strong stress.
