This timely Research Companion is essential reading to advance the understanding of healthy behaviours within working environments and to identify problems which can be the cause of illness.

Containing both theoretical and empirical contributions written by distinguished academics working in Europe, North America and Australia, the book covers leading edge topics ranging from current theories of stress, stress management, and stress in specific occupational groups, such as doctors and teachers, to the relationship of stress with well-being. It provides systematic approaches towards practical actions and stress interventions in working environments and a solid theoretical framework for future research. It will be an essential companion to research on psychology and medicine as well as stress.

‘Supported by 72 distinguished contributors from over 50 different institutions, this book, based on theoretical contributions as well as empirical reports and reviews, provides an in-depth and multi-faceted perspective on contemporary issues related to stress, mental and physical health in various domains of employment. . . this well-organized volume constitutes a detailed and comprehensive work with a scope and depth that will satisfy the most critical. As such, it serves as a more than valuable source of reference to occupational health science for students and professionals alike.’
