Description

The literature indicates that mental health and work-related stress constitute an increasing concern and that the management and mitigation of psychosocial risks require an interdisciplinary approach in various scientific fields ranging from occupational medicine to organizational psychology. In the recent international literature, mental health problems are associated with new and broader sources of work-related stress which can increase an individual’s vulnerability to more serious mental health issues as well as physical and psychosomatic complaints. In addition, there is evidence of the detrimental impact of work-related stress and mental health issues on workers’ health and safety, particularly with regard to cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal disorders, and employee well-being. As the majority of studies on these topics are conducted in clinical and psychiatric contexts, they limit the importance of the dimensions of “work, organizations, and occupations,” leading to a person-centered approach. However, trauma and diseases related to stress and mental health that originate in the workplace may have a different pattern of development or require an organization-centered treatment approach.

This special issue aims to create a multidisciplinary forum of scientific discussion that highlights a work contextual approach to the issue of mental health, stress, and disease in organizations.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Advances in measuring psychosocial risk factors, mental health, and work-related issues
  • Work-related stressors, stress, job satisfaction, and well-being
  • Work-related stress and somatization
  • Work-related stress and metabolic syndrome (MetS)
  • Work-related secondary traumatic stress and posttraumatic stress disorder
  • Sleep disturbance and stress/mental health difficulties
  • Violence and discrimination at work
  • Disability and mental health
  • Performance-enhancing drugs and stress/mental health problems
  • Work stressors coping and resilience
  • Psychosocial risk and protective factors at work
  • Successful interventions (RCT) in managing psychosocial risk factors and mental health at work
