This study investigated the correlation between the bidirectional aspects (work interference with family and family interference with work) of work-family conflict among mothers in the human service profession. Participants comprised 304 female teachers between the ages of 26 to 54 years (M=40.37, SD = 4.09) drawn from 24 state government secondary schools in Enugu metropolis using criterion sampling method. Okonkwo (2011) 32-item Work-Family Conflict Scale with two subscales measuring work interference with family and family interference with work was administered. Correlational design was used. Correlational analysis using Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient revealed that work interference with family related slightly positively with family interference with work, r (302) = 0.37, p<.05. The result was discussed in the light of Spillover Theory. Considering the result, it was concluded that if work interference with family correlated positively with family interference with work then these bidirectional dimensions of work-family conflict should be considered both distinct and related constructs.
