Website(s) of the Week: Society for Occupational Health Psychology

This week’s featured website is the Society for Occupational Health Psychology: http://sohp.psy.uconn.edu/.

 

Occupational Health Psychology (OHP), states the Society on its website, “involves the interdisciplinary partnerships of psychological and occupational health science professionals seeking to improve the quality of working life, and enhance the safety, health and well-being of workers in all occupations.”

 

In other words, OHP centers on the psychological health of workers, in contrast to the more familiar field of Industrial/Organizational Psychology, which emphasizes the use of psychological insights to maximize organizational efficiency and productivity.

 

At the website, you can access copies of the Society’s newsletters and learn a lot more about this emerging and important field of study and practice.
