Abstract
Abstract In this study the purpose was to examine whether participating in a conflict management training program called No Power No Lose for employees in a state run institution for compulsory treatment of drug abusers correlated with occupational self-efficacy (OSE). OSE was measured using self-reported scores on two different scales purporting to measure occupational aspects of the self-efficacy constructs. The hypothesis was that the number of completed training sessions would co-vary with at least one of the two occupational-efficacy scores. Statistical analysis failed to discover any significant correlations between the selected variables, with the exception of one subscale, self-oriented emotional occupational self-efficacy, which...

Abstract In this study the purpose was to examine whether participating in a conflict management training program called No Power No Lose for employees in a state run institution for compulsory treatment of drug abusers correlated with occupational self-efficacy (OSE). OSE was measured using self-reported scores on two different scales purporting to measure occupational aspects of the self-efficacy constructs. The hypothesis was that the number of completed training sessions would co-vary with at least one of the two occupational-efficacy scores. Statistical analysis failed to discover any significant correlations between the selected variables, with the exception of one subscale, self-oriented emotional occupational self-efficacy, which was found to have a significant correlation with the number of training sessions, and thus, four out of five of the study’s hypotheses were rejected. The results may be related to problems arising from the design and the data gathering process, with a high amount of drop-outs (approximately 66%) resulting in few respondents, and possible validity problems in the questionnaire due to aspects of social desirability. The potential implications of the results are discussed, and suggestions for further studies are given. (Less)
