Summary The second of two volumes to result from a national conference on work and well-being cosponsored by the APA [American Psychological Association] and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, this book investigates one of the most pivotal issues in the field of occupational mental health. Authors with backgrounds ranging from research to practice identify and analyze factors that contribute to and indicate stress among employees. With an eye to productivity and workplace constraints, they then document and discuss methods of both stress management and prevention. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved).
