This weekly diary study (N = 185 persons, n = 443 occasions) investigates how major life events influence weekly resource use, work engagement, and job performance. On the basis of the workâ€"home resources model, we propose that weekly rumination undermines effective use of personal resources (i.e., self-efficacy), whereas weekly psychological detachment from the major life events facilitates effective use. In addition, we hypothesize that work role centrality acts as a key resource, and amplifies the two-way interaction effects. Results of multilevel analyses were generally in line with predictions, and support the workâ€"home resources model. The findings suggest that detachment may effectively prevent negative spillover from home to work. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved)
