VALERIE J. SUTHERLAND is an occupational psychologist. As an independent consultant, her particular interest is the 'healthy organization' promoted by an integrated and strategic approach to stress management.

Organizational Psychology at the University of Manchester School of Management in the UK and was the Director of its Centre for Business Psychology.

ASHLEY WEINBERG is an occupational psychologist with twenty years' experience in the areas of stress and mental health at work, and a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Salford, UK. A British Psychological Society media contact, he is a regular

Review:

'Whether stress exists in organizations is no longer up for discussion, and its effects are equally pervasive. In this readable book, Weinberg, Sutherland and Cooper argue for the logic and benefits of an integrated, organizational strategy to best deal with stress in organizations. The widespread experience of these three authors tells us that this is a book that is well worth reading.' Professor Julian Barling, Associate Dean, Professor of Organizational Behaviour and Psychology, and Queen's Research Chair, Queen's School of Business and Fellow of the Royal Society, Canada

'Comprehensive and thorough a must for those interested in the theory, research and practice of organizational stress management.' Philip Dewe, Professor of Organizational Behaviour, Birkbeck, University of London

"An enlightening book, which confirms that good and effective stress management can benefit everybody working in any organisation." - Business Executive

Reviews for Strategic Stress Management:

'Professor Cary Cooper...has done an excellent job of collating findings over the past five decades. Evidence of this is the good chapter describing legal cases in which staff have sued their employers for exposing them to stressful situations.' - Supply Management

'This is a book that I shall certainly be using more than once. It should be read and re-read by those managers and practitioners who determine policy and develop the organizational processes that will allow us to function in an acceptable working environment. It is an excellent book looking at stress management from the right perspective.' - Strategy

'This book not only examines what stress is, but underlines some of the ways it can be combated and prevented. An insightful evaluation, which is of great use in today's stressful working environment, it will strike a cord with everyone.' - Business Age
