Health and safety, both physical and psychological, are important facets of organisational productivity and success. Therefore, occupational stress and its management with regards to coping mechanisms, strategies, and resources have increasingly become a focal point for organisational psychologists. This subject provides an overview of the workplace theories that focus on factors contributing to mental health and wellbeing at the workplace. It also includes understanding of psychological (e.g., stress, burnout) and social (e.g., social support) contexts that contribute to wellbeing for employees. The subject also examines individual (e.g., work engagement, resilience) and organisational (e.g., leadership, culture) factors that enhance psychological wellbeing at the workplace. Collaborative work on presentations and case studies provide direct avenues for developing skills to promote a positive organisational environment.
