Abstract: Demands from work consume the resources of an employee. Replenishing these resources –the process of recovery from work—is important because insufficient recovery may result in impaired well—being. One aspect of recovery is psychological detachment: The ability to psychologically disengage from work during off-time hours. Previous research showed the positive consequences of psychological detachment in terms of well-being, job-performance, and overall life-satisfaction. Because the relevance of the consequences of psychological detachment it is important to understand the preceding factors of psychological detachment. The aim of this study is to gain more insights on the antecedents of psychological detachment. This study investigates core self-evaluations (CSE), intrinsic motivation, job control, role ambiguity, and role conflict as predictors for psychological detachment with a cross-sectional research design using questionnaires.
