Stress management in work settings.
Murphy LR, Schoenborn TF, eds. Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 87-111, 1987 May; :1-189
Scientific evidence was summarized and conceptual and practical issues were reviewed as they relate to stress management at the worksite. Topics included assessing occupational stress, organizational stress and health, organizational stress assessment instruments, designing workplace stress management programs, stress management training, worksite stress management measurement and evaluation, and observations on the management of worker stress. A listing of resources included periodicals, books, video cassettes and film media, training material sources, and miscellaneous agencies and groups. The authors suggest that time and effort should be spent in job redesign and changing of organizational structures. In order to develop an effective program at a company for dealing with stress on the job, efforts should be made to define the purpose of the program, and to establish and clearly define the goals of the program, both on an organizational and individual level.
