“In general, the authors have provided readers with a thorough overview of research in many different areas of occupational health psychology. In our view, this textbook is most appropriate for graduate students and faculty, particularly given its emphasis on research and future directions for occupational health psychology. Advanced undergraduates, particularly those who have taken a research methods course, will also appreciate the text.”

–Gary W. Giumetti and Carrie A. Bulger, Quinnipiac University, Occupational Health Science Journal.

This comprehensive text for advanced undergraduate and graduate occupational health psychology (OHP) survey courses draws from the domains of psychology, public health, preventive medicine, nursing, industrial engineering, law, and epidemiology to focus on the theory and practice of protecting and promoting the health, well-being, and safety of individuals in the workplace and improving the quality of work life. The book will also appeal to anyone who is concerned with the corrosive effects of job stress.

The text addresses key psychosocial work issues that are often related to mental and physical health problems, including psychological distress, burnout, depression, accidental injury, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. It examines leadership styles as they impact organizational culture and provides specific recommendations for reducing employee-related stress through improved leader practices. Also addressed is the relationship between adverse psychosocial working conditions and harmful health behaviors, along with interventions aimed at improving the work environment and maximizing effectiveness. Additionally, the book discusses how scientists and practitioners in OHP conduct research and other important concerns such as workplace violence, work & life balance, and safety. The book reinforces learning with key concepts and findings, highlight tables containing intriguing examples of research and current controversies, and chapter summaries.
