Mental Health and Productivity in the Workplace: A Handbook for Organizations and Clinicians
by Jeffrey P. Kahn, Alan M. Langlieb (Jossey-Bass) Efficiency and employee well-being are more important than ever to the overall success of organizations. Emotions are key to understanding executive effectiveness, organizational change, and corporate ethics. Stress, burnout, depression, drug abuse, violence, and other mental health problems are costing businesses billions of dollars every year in lost productivity and costs of ineffective treatment.
Mental Health and Productivity in the Workplace is a comprehensive and practical guide to identifying, understanding, preventing, and resolving individual and organizational mental health problems in the workplace. Originally published as Mental Health in the Workplace (Van Nostrand/ Wiley, 1993), this completely revised, updated, and expanded edition represents the most current thinking in the field and contains contributions from an expert panel of organizational and occupational psychiatrists. With 50 percent more chapters, this new edition adds essential material on creating systems and cultures that encourage organizational productivity and employee mental health and on finding cost-effective, quality mental health care. The book focuses on problems that start "at the top" (executive dysfunction), as well as on the effects of organizational structure, office politics, chronic change, downsizing and employment uncertainty, officewide emotional crises, and aspects of organizational development. In addition, this helpful resource includes information about such basic issues as anxiety, stress, burnout, depression, drug and alcohol abuse, violence, and psychosis.
Written for executive management, human resource, benefits, occupational medicine, and mental health professionals, this essential handbook offers an emotionally informed guide to cost-effective implementation of policies for maximum productivity.
