AMBIEL, Rodolfo A. M.; SANTOS, Acácia Aparecida Angeli dos  e  SOUSA, Andressa Cantone de. Workers with hearing impairment: relationship between vulnerability to stress and job satisfaction. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.3, n.1, pp. 02-23. ISSN 2236-6407.

This study aimed to explore the relationships between vulnerability to labour stress and job satisfaction in a sample of people with hearing loss. 54 people were attended, all workers aged between 18 and 58 years (M = 30.37). Escala de Vulnerabilidade ao Estresse Laboral (EVENT) and Escala de Satisfação no Trabalho (EST) were applied, and the application process involved a researcher who communicates by Brazilian Signs Language (LIBRAS). The results showed low and moderate negative correlations between the tests. Men had higher scores on the EVENT and the women in the EST. People who speak LIBRAS had the highest averages in the EST, while the others scored more on EVENT. It was found that the longer in the same company, the greater the tendency to be more vulnerable and less satisfied. It is concluded that further studies should be done in order to evaluate other variables intertwined in the process of inclusion of people with hearing loss.
