The goal of this study was to understand and reduce chronic stress among corrections officers (COs).
Two inter-related objectives were 1) to perform a prospective 18-month observational study of approximately 400 COs to relate their stress levels to a) correctional work-related contributors to stress and b) impacts of stress on work higher (n=30) sub-cohort for objective 2, which evaluated a higher (n=30) and lower (n=30) stress sub-cohort for an extensive analysis to determine 1) how stress levels among COs related to work performance and 2) what were the relationships between fMRI, biomarker tests, and stress in higher and lower stress sub-cohorts. The study was a cross-sectional survey assessment of Oregon corrections professionals working directly with adults in custody.
