Stress is a growing problem in the world of work at both the individual and organizational level. As such, it is critical that I-O psychologists have a clear understanding of the underlying causes of stress (including factors in the current business and social environment), its potential consequences to individuals and organizations, and methods by which people might better manage or address stress for themselves and ways to help individuals and organizations do likewise. This program will provide an overview of core stress and stress management concepts and describe their application to the work of I-O psychologists.

Learning Objectives:
  • Describe work- and nonwork-related stressors and underlying causes of stress.
  • Identify and explain possible symptoms of and potential consequences of stress at the individual and organizational level.
  • Discuss the relevance and impact of stress and stress management on the practice of I-O psychology within organizations as well as at the individual level (e.g., coaching, executive assessment).
  • Compare and critique effective stress management methods and/or techniques that can be applied in the practice of I-O psychology.

Intended Audience:

This session is intended for a general audience at a post-graduate level; no specific content knowledge is required.
