Occupational Health Psychology: How can people remain healthy, motivated and satisfied with their work?
By addressing occupational health related topics, we seek to contribute to a better understanding of how sustainable employment can be fostered in today’s world of work. In our research we focus on identifying risk as well as protective factors for employee’s health and well-being and on developing and evaluating occupational health interventions.
Specifically, our research activities focus on emotional labour, on recovery from work stress and on the role of mindfulness for workplace functioning and well-being. In studying these topics we apply different methodologies, especially those that allow studying short- and long-term dynamics and capture changes in work stressors, experiences, and behaviour over time such as longitudinal designs, experience-sampling methodology, and combinations of randomised controlled trials with experience-sampling.
