2015 Work, Stress and Health (WSH) Conference announces call for proposals

In 2015, Work, Stress and Health is focusing on Sustainable Work, Sustainable Health, Sustainable Organizations.

The eleventh International Conference on Occupational Stress and Health, Work, Stress and Health 2015: Sustainable Work, Sustainable Health, Sustainable Organizations, will be held at the Westin Peachtree Plaza, Atlanta, on May 6-9, 2015, with preconference workshops and opening events on May 6. The conference is convened by APA's Public Interest Directorate, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, and the Society for Occupational Health Psychology.

The Work, Stress and Health Conference series addresses the ever-changing nature of work and the implications of these changes for the health, safety and well-being of workers. The conference covers numerous topics of interest to labor, management, practitioners and researchers, such as work and family issues, new forms of work organization, changing worker demographics, best practices for preventing stress and improving the health of workers and their organizations. Expert presentations and informal meetings with leading scientists and practitioners will provide an exciting forum for learning about the latest developments in occupational health psychology. The 2015 conference will give special attention to the concept of "sustainability," and the integral role of occupational safety and health in sustainable economic growth.

Researchers, business and organizational representatives, labor leaders and medical and social science professionals with interests in occupational safety and health are invited to submit proposals for poster presentations, papers, interactive panels and symposia that address any of the conference topics. Although the conference is enthusiastic about receipt of proposals addressing all designated topics, conference organizers are especially eager to receive proposals for symposia, posters and platform presentations that address this sustainability theme.
