Book Description

Bringing together renowned scholars, this handbook contains innovative current empirical and theoretical research in the area of job stress. The workplace is one of the major sources of stress in an individual's life. Placing this important topic in the context of a transactional process, this work is intended to be of use to practitioners working in clinical, organisational, family and health psychology, mental health, substance abuse, the military, and with families and women.; Chapters are arranged in five parts, the first considering theoretical approaches with an introductory article by Professor Emeritus Richard S. Lazarus. Next is an examination of various model testing formats, followed by a section on occupational stress research and coping mechanisms. Fourth is a collection of articles on the subject of burnout, and the book closes with two distinct interventions directed at stress reduction.
