Reported job stress in the US workforce is on the increase. Among the causes are downsizing, reorganization, the pressures of global competition, and constantly changing new technology. This edited book of empirical studies presents models for job stress intervention both at the individual level and at the organizational and policy level. "Job Stress Interventions" investigates stress management training, the promotion of coping strategies among unemployed workers, and help for workers who experience posttraumatic stress disorder as a result of their job. It also presents some promising new developments that enable interventions to be made at the organizational level and thus promote organizational health. Finally, the volume examines policy and legislation issues such as workers' compensation claims, the development of occupational stress standards, and occupational welfare in the European Community.
