In this paper, we propose the moderating effects of self-efficacy and social support on the relationship between physical therapists' job stress and psychological burnout. Based on the previous studies, this study set up three types of variables: 1) independent variable, 2) moderating variable, 3) dependent variable. Job stress was identified as an independent variable, self-efficacy and social support was identified as a moderating variable and psychological burnout was identified as a dependent variable. To empirically conduct this study, a total of 200 questionnaires were distributed to physical therapists. Consequently, a total of 155 survey responses were collected.
The survey results are as follows. First, the result showed a high-level of correlation among job stress, psychological burnout, self-efficacy, and social support. Second, self-efficacy was found to have a moderating effect on the relationship between the physical therapists' job stress and psychological burnout. Third, social support was found to have a moderating effect on the relationship between the art therapists' job stress and psychological burnout.
