Overview

Workplace health is now recognized as having major legal, financial and efficiency implications for organizations. The workplace itself has become a health issue. This new edition of The Handbook of Work and Health Psychology continues to provide a comprehensive, authoritative and current survey of this important field and its future territory.

With a focus on the applied aspects of work and health psychology and linking research with practice, Marc Schabracq, Jacques Winnubst and Cary Cooper have assembled authors in their respective fields. Together they identify not only the problems but also possible solutions to creating healthier work organizations.

This handbook is an unrivalled source of knowledge and references in the field – an essential resource for libraries serving students, researchers and practitioners in work and organizational psychology, health psychology, occupational medicine, and human resource managers and policy-makers in the workplace.
