Summary: In today's difficult global economy, work stress is high, and this stress--along with other health factors--can affect work productivity, satisfaction, safety, absenteeism, turnover, and even workplace violence. As a result, organizations are increasingly turning to occupational health psychology (OHP) to develop, maintain, and promote the health of employees.

This second edition of the Handbook of Occupational Health Psychology reviews the history of OHP;
theories and models; causes of work problems and risks; resulting symptoms and disorders; prevention, intervention, and treatment strategies used by practicing professionals; and methods of research and evaluation.

The chapters have been updated since the first edition was published, and several new chapters have been added addressing cross-cultural issues, leadership, pain and musculoskeletal conditions, substance abuse, and organizational justice.

With a comprehensive scope and interdisciplinary approach, this book will interest professionals from a range of specialties, including industrial and organizational psychology, human factors, social psychology, health psychology, clinical psychology, public health, preventive medicine, and industrial engineering.
