9780195335446: Oxford Handbook of Positive Psychology and Work (Oxford Library of Psychology)

Oxford Handbooks offer authoritative and up-to-date reviews of original research in a particular subject area. Specially commissioned chapters from leading figures in the discipline give critical examinations of the progress and direction of debates, as well as a foundation for future research. Oxford Handbooks provide scholars and graduate students with compelling new perspectives upon a wide range of subjects in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences.
Part of the Oxford Library of Psychology, the Oxford Handbook of Positive Psychology and Work examines what positive psychology offers to our understanding of key issues in working life today. Drawing on the disparate literatures from positive psychology, management, I/O psychology, and human resources, the volume begins with a consideration of the changing world of work that sets the context for the rest of the book and then moves into a specific consideration of work issues from the perspective of positive psychology. Chapters focus on such topics as strengths, leadership, human resource management, employee engagement, communications, well-being, and work-life balance. The volume will be a core resource for both researchers and practitioners interested in the application of positive psychology to work.

Review:


"More than fifty researchers and practitioners have contributed to this handbook from three continents (UK, US, and Australia), bringing a more diverse view of the workplace....The handbook is a must have for students, researchers, consultants, and coaches who seek to bring the latest thinking from positive psychology to the workplace....Consider adding the Oxford Handbook of Positive Psychology and Work to your bookshelf in your quest to make work a more positive experience."--As reviewed by Margaret Greenberg, MAPP, for Positive Psychology News Daily


"This volume is likely to become a primary resource for anyone--including CEOs, HR directors, consultants, and coaches--interested in the application of positive psychology to work."--CHOICE


"...An excellent summary of the state of the field of positive psychology and work...numerous case studies and vignettes often tell exciting stories that point to stimulating directions for future research. Graduate students and practitioners new to the field will likely be inspired by what they read. There is so much of value here, and all involved are to be commended."
