This textbook is the first to cover the new and rapidly developing field of occupational health psychology. Since its emergence as a discrete discipline in the early 1990's, occupational health psychology has generated a wealth of scientific knowledge on work-related stress and wider organizational issues as they relate to individual and organizational health. It provides an introduction to the discipline and an accessible overview of the key themes in research and practice.
Each chapter relates to an aspect of the core education curriculum delineated by the European Academy of Occupational Health Psychology (EAOHP), and is written by internationally recognized experts in the field. Numerous contemporary workplace issues are examined, including work-related stress, the psychosocial work environment, positive psychology and employee well-being, interventions to promote occupational health, psychosocial risk management, psychology of physical workspace design, organizational research methods, and corporate culture and health.
