Abstract
American, British, and Scandinavian methods of dealing with relationships between occupational stress and health are presented in the proceedings of a conference on occupational stress held at the Center for Occupational Health in New York, May 1977. The role of the health professional in stress management, the role of the organization, legislative and government programs, preventive and remedial approaches to the problem of occupational stress and mental illness are discussed. Also covered are analyses of the work environment; social support for workers under stress; effects of computerization on work environment; management, white collar and blue collar stressors; and stress and its relationship to specific health problems such as myocardial infarction, alcohol abuse, schizophrenia, and work related accidents. Emphasis is on the similarities and differences in approach among some industrialized nations, and the extent to which restructuring of the work environment has begun to take precedence over attempts to alleviate the effects of stress created by the work environment.
