This book is an important, fresh contribution to the field of job satisfaction, workplace coping, and mental health. The compendium balances original, vigorous research and comprehensive reviews that explore questions of personality type, institutional culture, career choice, and workplace trauma. Leading researchers investigate the larger forces that shape our workplace environment as well as the specific challenges of diverse populations – clergy, physicians, coaches, social workers, and civil service workers.

Attuned to the most important questions of job burnout and coping, this collection is commended for both the researcher and committed student who wish to explore the forces that influence the modern workplace. It shows promise to be a landmark in the field and will enjoy a prominent place in psychology libraries the world over. (Imprint: Nova)
