A collection of papers presented at a 1985 conference on work stress and health care. In this comprehensive volume, the authors, well-known experts in their field, present a broad spectrum of stress-related conditions in the workplace and discuss the relationship between prevention and therapy. Throughout the volume contributing researchers and practitioners present different aspects of stress and suggest a number of intervention strategies. Excellent up-to-date sources covering a vareity of disciplines are cited throughout the book. This volume would be useful to diverse audiences. Choice While there are many studies demonstrating the effects of stress on employees and organizations, there is little evidence that research findings are being appropriately used in corporate health care systems. Work Stress, consisting of original, multidisciplinary papers by academics and practitioners, examines the current knowledge of work stress, preventive management strategies, and therapeutic healing techniques used in health care programs.

?The editors . . . have produced a valuable introduction and reference to the subject of stresses in the workplace. The result, from a 1983 conference, is a readable, informative, exceptionally well-organized, and mostly complete presentation of this challenging and often controversial subject. The individual authors have gone well beyond their conference presentations, adding recent references and coordinated perspectives. . . . The book is a valuable resource for those interested in creating industrial programs for treatment or disability evaluation and for the individual psychiatric practitioner who provides psychotherapy to workers reporting symptoms of work stressors.?-Bull Am Acad Psychiatry Law ?The material is authoritative, attractively presented, and well referenced. This book is a must for anyone interested in the multifaceted problem of occupational stress.?-The Newsletter of the American Institute of Stress ?Those interested in the health consequences of work stress, concerned with the state of the art from research findings, and committed to what one can do about work stress from an intervention point of view will find this a very valuable conference book. . . . The editors, contributors, and publishers are to be congratulated.?-Contemporary Sociology "The material is authoritative, attractively presented, and well referenced.
