Synopsis

Psychologists have only recently begun to learn how psychotherapy can be used to help clients achieve a sense of occupational &, hence, personal fulfillment. In the past, work distress has too often been "pathologized" by therapists, examined out of context & viewed solely through the lens of individual psychodynamics. This theory-based book demonstrates the importance of work & the work environment while examining common psychological hurdles to occupational happiness. In the first systematic treatment of this topic, the author examines current literature & proposes a new, clinically useful taxonomy of diagnosis for work-related dysfunction. Numerous case examples illustrate the main areas of the taxonomy & the psychotherapeutic techniques most promising for successful intervention. Several broad areas of work dysfunction are examined, including overcommitment & burnout, undercommitment & fear of success & failure, work-related anxiety & depression, & personality disorders in the workplace. The book also offers guidance for the unique problems faced by artists, writers, & others in the creative professions. This essential guide will educate therapists to emerging themes in a critical new area of intervention.
