Issues, Theory, and Research in Industrial/Organizational Psychology

Author: Louise Kelley

Publisher: Elsevier

ISBN: 9780080867366

Category: Psychology

Page: 474

View: 6408

Industrial/Organizational psychologists are a rather diverse group of people with a common interest in applying psychology to work settings. This is the conclusion reached by George Alliger in the opening chapter of this volume, setting the tone for the rest of the book, which attempts to expand our view of what can be considered as I/O psychology. The authors of the individual chapters are from a variety of backgrounds, not all of them directly associated with I/O psychology, and they discuss topics such as managerial success and training, as well as topics much more on the edge of I/O such as team-building and organizational theory. Thus, this volume makes an important statement about the potential diversity of our field. At the same time, it will help move us towards that diversity by providing insights and information in areas that should be, and are becoming part of the realm of I/O psychology. These insights into non-traditional topics, as well as particularly interesting approaches to more traditional areas, make this volume worthwhile and useful to almost anyone concerned with I/O psychology.

The Psychodynamics of Work and Organizations

Theory and Application

Author: William M. Czander

Publisher: Guilford Press

ISBN: 9780898622843

Category: Psychology

Page: 408

View: 6721

An individual's working life undergoes the same intrapsychic conflicts as other aspects of experience. Yet, as a subject of psychoanalytic inquiry, the world of work has largely been ignored. In this innovative book, William M. Czander demonstrates that applying depth psychology to the organization and its employees provides a deeper understanding of the American workplace than traditional industrial psychology has offered. Using a psychoanalytic framework, Czander examines such issues as interactions between employees and management, the conscious and unconscious forces that bind fellow employees together, and the role of autonomy in people's lives. Most important, he details a means of intervention in the form of organizational consultation based on this more profound conceptualization of the dynamics of the workplace. The first section of the book presents theoretical background, and the second applies theory to specific cases. Czander presents three major theories of psychoanalysis as they relate to work and the organization: Freudian and classical psychoanalytic theory, object relations theory, and self psychology theory. He explores how a psychoanalyst thinks about work and how work and the organization interact with the employees' unconscious motivations and ideation. He then applies these theories to actual case studies of organizational consultations. The consultation process is explained, including how a particular diagnosis and rationale for intervention is obtained. Czander concludes with a discussion of the practice of psychoanalytic consulting and its utility and relevance to the world of contemporary organizations. Providing illuminating discussion on myriad issues related to the psychology of the workplace, this book is an ideal resource for a variety of mental health professionals: psychoanalysts especially interested in organizational consulting, organizational psychologists desiring a new perspective on their work, and clinicians from different disciplines whose clients are struggling with issues surrounding their work environments. It serves as an advanced text for courses in industrial organization, clinical and social work, and business management.

"Consulting is one of the fastest growing occupations in the United States. This innovative volume offers basic guidance on the fundamentals of consulting, with authoritative essays by leaders in the field. Hedge and Borman and their colleagues guide their readers through a career continuum, beginning with learning about potential employers to creating and maintaining a business and watching it grow and thrive. In chapters that combine a strong grounding in contemporary industrial and organizational (I/O) research with personal accounts of their career journeys and day-to-day activities, the contributors bring the basic principles conveyed by Hedge and Borman to life. Readers hear of the extraordinary breadth of consulting experiences--in the private and public sectors, the military, and academia. The authors consider such topics as strategic planning, points of entry into the field, ethics and networking, and the advantages and disadvantages of joining a large firm versus starting up one's own consulting practice. The principles and perspectives detailed in this book will resonate with psychology graduate students embarking on their careers as well as seasoned professionals weighing new career directions"--Jacket.
