Workplace Wellbeing – A Relational Approach presents the most important, insightful and up-to-date academic thinking and research related to flourishing at work.
The book describes the transformative humanistic skills, values and attributes ordinarily adopted by counsellors and psychotherapists alike and shows how they may be transferred from a therapeutic setting to the workplace. Integrating ideas and strategies from counselling and psychotherapy, the book gathers together a wealth of accessible, interactive exercises and resources to help develop the skills and personal awareness to thrive in organizations.
Workplace Wellbeing – A Relational Approach examines how we can create an emotionally healthy workplace for all of us. It will prove useful for counsellors and psychotherapists, whether in training or practice in an organizational setting. More importantly however, it is designed to be of value to the non-specialist, particularly those working in business, education, healthcare, human resources, occupational health, and organizational psychology.
"It is wonderful how the author connects existing theories, thoughts and research and presents them through the lens of the relational approach….the examples and exercises are really useful and important, and this book might be used more generally for career guidance"
Dr Matthijs Bal, Professor of Responsible Management, Lincoln International Business School.
