Affinity Health at Work

Publications and presentations

We actively publish in our areas of expertise in books and book chapters, and in both peer reviewed academic journals and trade press and publications. 

Preventing stress in organizations: How to develop positive managers: Our book (based on our research on line managers and preventing stress) was published by Wiley Blackwell in 2010. It focusses on the role of line managers in preventing and reducing stress in their employees. It is aimed primarily at practitioners who work with line managers to help them with people management and stress management skills/approaches and at those in training for these practitioner roles. In October 2013, it won the BPS Book Award for best Practitioner Text. It is available on Amazon in both hard copy and Kindle versions - click here.

Work and Occupational Psychology: Integrating Theory and Practice: Rachel's new text book includes lots of useful information for aspiring Occupational and Business Psychologists! It focuses specifically on the integration of theory and practice in the discipline, so helps you to see what Occupational Psychologists actually do in the workplace and where the theory fits in. Also available on Amazon - here.

The Wiley-Blackwell Handbook of the Psychology of Leadership, Change and Organizational Development: Rachel has also just edited a handbook of leadership from Wiley Blackwell showcasing a range of recent and exciting developments in the field. Also available on Amazon - here.
