Utilizing a semi-structured interview protocol this study engages in a phenomenological inquiry to examine school counselors’ experiences of job stress and burnout. We specifically explore the use of two different theoretical frameworks for understanding these phenomena, in order to improve our understanding of how to frame future research efforts. We identify themes consistent with the Maslach model of burnout and themes consistent with the Job Demand Control Support (JDCS) theory of job stress. We make recommendations regarding use of the JDCS in future research, as well as discussing avenues for advocacy.
