Handbook of Work Stress by Julian Barling
Book DescriptionQuestions about the causes or sources of work stress have been the subject of considerable research, as well as public fascination, for several decades. Earlier interest in this issue focused on the question of whether some jobs are simply more inherently stressful than others. Other questions that soon emerged asked whether some individuals were more prone to stress than others."The Handbook of Work Stress" focuses primarily on identifying the different sources of work stress across different contexts and individuals. It affords the most broad and credible perspective on the subject of work stress available. The editors are all prominent researchers in the field of work stress, and have been instrumental in defining and developing the field from an organizational-psychological and organizational-behavior perspective. International contributors are included, reflecting similarities and differences from around the world. Chapter authors from the United States, Canada, England, Sweden, Japan, and Australia have been invited to participate, reflecting most of the countries in which active research on work stress is taking place. "The Handbook of Work Stress" is essential reading for researchers in the fields of industrial and organizational psychology, human resources, health psychology, public health and employee assistance.
