About this Book

Workplace health is now recognised as having major legal, financial and efficiency implications for organizations. Psychologists are increasingly called on as consultants or in house facilitators to help design work processes, assess and counsel individuals and advise on change management.

The second edition of this handbook offers a comprehensive, authoritative and up-to-date survey of the field with a focus on the applied aspects of work and health psychology.

An unrivalled source of knowledge and references in the field, for students and academics, this edition also reflects the need to relate research to effective and realistic interventions in the workplace.
