In this chapter we extend previous theory on the effects of stressors at the intersection of the work-family interface by considering the challenge stressor-hindrance stressor framework. Our central proposition is that stressors in one domain (work or non-work) are associated with criteria in the same domain and across domains through four core mediating variables. Through this theoretical lens we develop a set of propositions, which as a set, suggest that managing the work-family interface involves balancing the offsetting indirect effects of challenge and hindrance stressors.
