The rapid and sweeping changes in the economy, technology, work practices and family structures mean that organizational health psychology has never been so essential for understanding stress in the workplace. This timely Research Companion is essential reading to advance the understanding of healthy behaviors within working environments and to identify problems which can be the cause of illness.
Containing both theoretical and empirical contributions written by distinguished academics working in Europe, North America and Australia, the book covers leading edge topics ranging from current theories of stress, stress management, and stress in specific occupational groups, such as doctors and teachers, to the relationship of stress with well-being. It provides systematic approaches towards practical actions and stress interventions in working environments and a solid theoretical framework for future research. It will be an essential companion to research on psychology and medicine as well as stress.
