    "Recommended for academic collections, upper-division undergraduate and above, as well as professional libraries." (CHOICE, September 2010)

    "This excellent book helps readers understand how difficulties arise in the workplace and focuses on prevention of problems. It is practical, easy to read, and gives recommendations for positive change. The book covers many different topics, both on the individual and organizational level. It ends with encouraging the organization to become healthy, while maximizing profits, productivity, and employee sense of well ]being. The third edition incorporates new research findings and has new contributors who focus on intervention and prevention." (Doody's, June 2010)

    ‘The timing of this Handbook could not be better. Now the World’s economies appear to be starting to recover from Global Financial Crash, there will be a stronger need than ever for organizations to manage the health of their employees. Financial stringency, longer hours, demands for performance all contribute to stress and, unless managed appropriately, can result in negative health outcomes. What I really like about this book, therefore, is its increased emphasis on positive outcomes. It’s not all doom and gloom. Based on the latest evidence-based research, the authors of the chapters in the Handbook provide a positive agenda for improving workplace health and wellbeing.’
    Neal M. Ashkanasy, Professor of Management, The University of Queensland, Australia

    ‘Positive emotions lead to health, health leads to sustainability and full cognitive capability, and this leads to effective performance and adaptability. This latest collection of papers by the terrific trio of Cooper, Quick and Schabracq helps shine the light on the latest research from multiple fields in the context of an emerging literature that will soon become required reading for anyone wanting to be a manager, executive, leader, or professional.’
    Professor Richard E. Boyatzis, Case Western Reserve University, USA

    ‘Health is a key driver of economic growth and an invaluable resource. This new edition of the Handbook of Work and Health Psychology is very timely in reflecting the important economic and social changes which have impacted on the nature of work, work organization and employee health and well being in recent years.

    ‘In particular, the book highlights the key importance of an organizational strategy for health improvement build around intervention and prevention. The book is an excellent up-to-date resource for those interested or working in the area of occupational psychology and health.’
    Professor Susan Cartwright, Centre for Organizational Health and Well Being, Lancaster University, UK
