Abstract

The purpose of this study is to test how emotional labor is affected by the tow emotional labor strategies for burnout. To do this, the parallel mediating effects of surface acting and deep acting are verified in relation to mindfulness and burnout on survey data of 235 care-givers. The result shows that not only direct effects of mindfulness reducing burnout, but also indirect effects through differential mediation to increase deep acting and reduce surface acting. While mindfulness is reducing the burnout, the decrease in surface acting is found to have a greater effect than the increase in deep acting. In addition, we examine the relative influence of attention and attitude factors of mindfulness on the emotional labor strategies and burnout, and discuss the proposal for mindfulness meditation training and future research directions.
