Those of you who read my earlier post, “What’s a psychologically healthy workplace?” may want to read the thoughtful comments that were submitted by Drs. Kathy Rospenda, Curtis Reisinger, and — on behalf of the APA’s Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards Program that I critiqued in my post — David Ballard and Matthew Grawitch: https://newworkplace.wordpress.com/2009/01/26/whats-a-psychologically-healthy-workplace/.
Let me thank these four individuals for responding to me as a colleague, even though I am very much a layperson in their areas of considerable expertise. I hope they understand that my commentary is grounded in part on a firm belief that employment law scholars and practitioners must pay much greater attention to psychological health at work. When specialists give non-specialists space to enter a dialogue, we all benefit, and we all learn.
