Research Companion to Organizational Health Psychologyby S. Antoniou, C. L. Cooper
Pub. Date: 04/30/2005
Publisher: Elgar, Edward Publishing, Inc.
Workplace stress (and other aspects of organizational life) can be a major determinant of health outcomes. Antoniou (occupational and industrial hygiene, National School of Public Health, Greece) and Cooper (organizational psychology and health, Lancaster U. Management School, UK) present 42 theoretical and empirical research papers from an international group of academics investigating the relationship between working environments and health, with a particular emphasis on stress. Broadly, the papers discuss the conceptualization and theoretical framework; stress management issues; stress in specific groups; connections between stress, well being, and health; professional burnout; and emotional intelligence. The papers are mostly descriptive in nature, but there are a few prescriptive contributions exploring intervention approaches. The material is primarily aimed at an academic and postgraduate readership from psychology and medicine interested in the main areas of organizational health psychology.
