Profile
Description: 

When he was an undergraduate at Brooklyn College, Prof. Schonfeld majored in psychology and minored mathematics. He became a mathematics teacher for the New York City Board of Education. He informally observed that chaotic, and sometimes violent, circumstances of his school had a baleful effect on many of his teacher colleagues. These observations contributed to a future line of research, a line of research he would not have anticipated at the time he was teacher. While teaching in that troubled inner city school, he earned a master's degree, attending the New School for Social Research at night, after work. Eventually he left teaching to pursue a doctorate full-time at the CUNY Graduate Center. At the GC he combined developmental psychology with educational psychology, and conducted research on children's mathematical cognition. About a year after he earned his doctorate, he obtained a research associate position at New York State Psychiatric Institution/Dept. of Psychiatry, Columbia University. Working with David Shaffer, he became involved in research on psychopathology and attentional impairments in adolescents. He won a post-doctoral fellowship with the Psychiatric Epidemiology Training Program at Columbia. It was there that, under the influence of Bruce Dohrenwend and Bruce Link, he became interested in stress research. Their influence dovetailed with his informal observations of his teacher colleagues. 

When he moved to City College, Prof. Schonfeld wrote grant applications to underwrite research on the impact of job stressors on mental health and morale of teachers. As a result of his interest in job stress, Prof. Schonfeld came to identify with the emerging field of occupational health psychology. He is the founding editor of the Newsletter of the Society for Occupational Health Psychology and a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology. While at City College, he obtained appointments to the doctoral faculty in the Educational Psychology Program and the Psychology Program at the CUNY Graduate Center. He also became involved in a number of other projects, including research on burnout's overlap with depression and stress in the self-employed. Prof. Schonfeld has also written on the topics of school violence and bullying. Springer recently published a book by Prof. Schonfeld and Prof. Chu-Hsiang Chang (Michigan State University) entitled Occupational Health Psychology: Work, Stress, and Health

Prof. Schonfeld is also an affiliated faculty member of the Dept. of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, CUNY School of Public Health.

Prof. Schonfeld published two works of short fiction and has written a memoir, yet unpublished, about growing up in a family of modest means in a New York City housing project. He has also been working on other pieces of short fiction that he hopes to publish. When Prof. Schonfeld is not working, he enjoys reading, photography, softball, and hiking. He is also interested in cinema, and has organized a film club at City College.

He is happily married and has two above-average adult children.

Research Interests
Description: 

The focus of Prof. Schonfeld's research has been the impact of working conditions on mental health and morale. The book he wrote with Prof. Chu-Hsiang Chang reviews a wide swath of research on the relation of psychosocial working condtions to cardiovascular disease, depression, suicide, alcohol problems, musculoskeletal disorders, accidents, and work-family imbalance. He has studied the impact of working conditions on depression, self-esteem, and job satisfaction in teachers. In the last few years, Prof. Schonfeld and his colleagues Renzo Bianchi (University of Neuchâtel) and Eric Laurent (University Bourgogne Franche-Comté) have investigated the question of whether job-related burnout is a separate clinical entity (whether treated diagnostically or dimensionally) or if burnout is actually a depressive syndrome. More recently Prof. Schonfeld has become interested in the burnout-depression-anxiety relationship.

Prof. Schonfeld is interested in how progress in the development of statistical methodology (e.g., hierarchical linear modeling) can advance research in occupational health psychology. Although, like many investigators, he generally adopts a quantitative approach to research, he has conducted qualitative research, and is interested how qualitative research methods add to the research enterprise by driving discovery, theory development, and hypothesis generation.

Earlier in his career, he conducted research on (a) the development of children's cognition about number and quantity, (b) the relationship between late developments in Piagetian theory, i.e., the psychology of functions and correspondences, and Cattell and Horn's ideas about gf-gc, (c) the relation of a minor neurological abnormalities in childhood to mood disorders and attentional and cognitive difficulties in adolescence, and (d) the teaching of evolution in schools. More recently, and much to his own surprise, Prof. Schonfeld has become involved in research on people who lost their religious beliefs.

Current Projects
Description: 
In a study of more than 700 U.S. teachers, my colleagues, Jay Verkuilen and Renzo Bianchi, and I examined the correlations among two depressive symptoms scales, the Patient Health Questionnaire's 9-item depression module (PHQ-9) and a 10-item version of the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D), and the three subscales of the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI), emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal accomplishment. We found that the correlations of both the PHQ-9 and CES-D with emotional exhaustion, the core of burnout, exceeded .70. The disattenuated correlations (correlations corrected for measurement error) of the two depression scales with the emotional exhaustion subscale were greater than .80.
We conducted a second-order confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). We let the items of the two depression scales, the CES-D and PHQ-9, load on a first-order depression factor (DEP1). As per Maslach, we let the emotional exhaustion items load on a first-order emotional exhaustion factor (EE1). We let the depersonalization items load on a first-order depersonalization factor (DP1); we let the personal accomplishment items load on a first-order personal accomplishment factor (PA1). We improved the first-order model by model permitting a small number of residuals to covary and some items to cross-load.

In the second-order component of the CFA, we found that DEP1 and EE1 loaded on our second-order depression factor (DEP2). We also found that DP1 loaded on DEP2. As anticipated, PA1 did not load on DEP2.

The disattenuated correlations involving the original scales mentioned in the first paragraph above were consistent with the correlations we obtained in the CFA. The correlations among the first-order factors of depression and emotional exhaustion, whether or not we permitted some residuals to correlate and items to cross-load, were comparable to the disattenuated correlations we obtained with the raw scales.

The CFA and correlational findings are largely consistent with the view that job-related burnout reflects a depressive process, and burnout is not a construct that is separable from depression.


In a study of 252 teachers, whom I followed every day for two weeks in almost real time, I am looking at the impact of stressful job-related events (e.g., student fighting) on mood, enervation, and job satisfactions.
