Job Stress in a Changing Workforce: Investigating Gender, Diversity, and Family Issues
Job Stress in a Changing Workforce presents critical research studies and thought on the ways job stresses can affect individual workers. This book also examines the economic and demographic trends, focusing on the new demands posed by workforce diversity (e.g., gender, age, cultural, and ethnic factors affecting careers, stress harassment, and social identity) and work and family topics, such as child care, marital functioning, and balancing multiple work/nonwork roles. By clarifying many of the current ambiguities in our knowledge of work stress, this book helps set the agenda for research in this critical area of psychological inquiry.
Job Stress in a Changing Workforce is a product of a 1992 conference titled "Stress in the '90s: A Changing Workforce in a Changing Workplace," jointly sponsored by the American Psychological Association and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
