Work Psychology

An Introduction to Human Behaviour in the Workplace

Edited by Lisa Matthewman, Amanda Rose, and Angela Hetherington

  • Explores the traditional core topics, in addition to developments in the field (including emotional intelligence, relationships at work, diversity and occupational trauma) to show how the psychology of work helps to shape our understanding and knowledge of the world of work.
  • A critical approach is applied to the presentation of theory, research, and practice to encourage students to apply concepts and evaluate key theories.
  • Coverage of cross-cultural issues reflect the European and global context of the world of work.
  • A section at the beginning of the book is devoted to studying work psychology and provides an opportunity to revise core skills including case study analysis, writing reports and essays, and identifying transferable skills for the future.
  • A wide range of pedagogical features including a colour text design, case studies at the start of each chapter, and reflective questions within each chapter structure the reader's learning and understanding of the subject matter more easily.
