Overview

While many popular press books deal with issues of stress in the workplace, their target audience has typically been managers and administrators, not work psychologists or psychologists-in-training. This text is written by working psychologists focused at the level of the individual worker. It critically reviews the literature across the broad domain of work stress in a fairly non-technical manner, while retaining scientific integrity. Because of rapid changes in work environments from technological advances and a myriad of economic, social and other factors, this ongoing transformation of work stress creates a "moving target" for this subject. Giving structure to this fluid topic, the text outlines a conceptual model in chapter one that approaches work stress as a process. This model serves as an organizing framework for the book, and as a way to integrate a variety of research streams within a unified "conceptual umbrella." Instead of approaching work stress as a problem, the authors use their experience as active psychologists to help readers understand work stress as a process, and to help them cope with stress in the modern workplace.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The focus on how coping with job and with life stress might differ is important. This could be a particularly valuable section, since most coping recommendations were not developed for work-related stress."

"The book appears to have a good balance between individual and organizational levels. The integration of the two levels is especially noteworthy."
