Work-related stress presents a major challenge to today’s organizations. Yet for such a widespread problem, surprisingly little guidance is available on developing stress prevention management skills – and even less is backed up by solid research.

Preventing Stress in Organizations addresses this problem by presenting an accessible, evidence-based exploration of how managers can reduce and prevent stress in their staff. The authors introduce an innovative programme based on their own ongoing research study (for which they were awarded ‘Practitioner of the Year’ by the British Psychological Society Division of Occupational Psychology), along with other relevant theories and cutting-edge work from the field. After providing a broad introduction to the importance of work-related stress and its management, they reveal a unique set of 'Positive Manager Behaviours’ – skills they have identified as critical to preventing stress and promoting a healthy, positive workplace. An in-depth discussion of these behaviours is supported by detailed case studies and practical exercises to facilitate real-world implementation.

Preventing Stress in Organizations offers groundbreaking insights and invaluable hands-on skills to maintain and promote the health and well-being of individuals and organizations alike.
