Abstract

The rationale for studying clinical environments is based on the assumption that negative environmental factors impinge on clinicians and result in negative client-clinician interaction and outcome. Negative effects of the clinical environment are factors such as stress, job dissatisfaction and burn-out. This article focuses on these factors among health professionals, including mental health professionals. It further deals with interventions to remedy negative environmental factors. The role of an environmental support like 'clinical supervision', which is supposed to have a positive buffering effect on environmental factors, has been discussed.
