Occupational Stress

A compact, evidence-based overview of occupational stress

  • Written by a leading occupational psychologist
  • Explores the causes of occupational stress
  • Provides evidence-based prevention strategies
  • Highlights current self-report measures

The workplace can be a major source of stress, and this can cause health problems that have a negative impact on individuals, organizations, and society. This concise, evidence-based volume, written by a leading occupational health psychologist, explores how work conditions and organizational characteristics pose threats and harms to people’s well-being through the lens of occupation stress theories and models. The author then summarizes the potential adverse impacts of major job stressors across individuals, families, organizations, and nations. In a final section, several evidence-based prevention strategies targeting individuals, management, and organizations are explored, including recovery from work, job crafting, and supervisors as change agents. Practitioners can modify and tailor these actionable strategies to assist employees and organizations in managing occupational stress. This book is essential reading for clinical and occupational psychologists, managers, supervisors, and anyone interested in making the workplace a healthier place.

It transitions logically through the concepts provided, making for a good frame of understanding. Beginning with basic terminology and definitions, it goes on to explore theories and models, which are both valuable and fascinating. Major sections describe job stressors and how these can be prevented.”
