An organization that would like to create a "family-friendly" workplace must consider four interrelated components (see the entry on family-friendly workplaces in the Sloan Work and Family Encyclopedia for more detail).

Third, they must encourage workplace relationships that are respectful of employees' nonwork ...

Work-life Balance and Role Stresses: A research summary - The ...
Work-life balance is not something that just happens. It involves the efforts of a number of partners: the employee, the organization for which the employee works, the family with whom the employee lives, and the society in which all are embedded. It involves mutual understanding and respect between all of these players and balance can be thought of as a set of reciprocal relationships with a set of highly inter-reliant partners. In recent years, a growing body of research has examined the interconnections between work and family (Burke & Greenglass, 1987; Eckenrode & Gore, 1990; Edwards & Rothbard, ... market research, surveys and trends

Stress is a dynamic condition in which an individual is confronted with an opportunity, or demand related to what he or she desires and for which the outcome is perceived to be both uncertain and important.

More typically, stress is associated with constraints and demand. The former prevent you from doing what you desire. The later refers to the loss of something desired. Two conditions are necessary for potential stress to become actual ... market research, surveys and trends

Can anything cure the trauma of my mugging?
The plastic pods in my hands vibrated in rhythmic succession. "Can you see your safe place with your protector figure near you?" my therapist asked. This is so bogus, I thought. But a few nights earlier, when my elder daughter playfully jumped in my lap at an outdoor movie screening, I had burst into tears right there in the middle of the crowd. The week before that, I'd fled the room in sobs when her sister ran at me to give me a hug. So I held on to those dumb-looking plastic pods for dear life, because I didn't want to cry anymore when my kids played with me. On Saturday, May 8, at approximately 3 p.m., I ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Behavioral theories suggest that personality is a result of interaction between the individual and the environment. Behavioral theorists study observable and measurable behaviors, rejecting theories that take internal thoughts and feelings into account.
