“Occupational Health Psychology concerns the application of psychology to improving the quality of work life and to protecting and promoting the safety, health, and well-being of workers” (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health – NIOSH). These issues are found to be of critical relevance to business, therefore researchers and practitioners in organizational and occupational health psychology address the sources and the consequences of stressors, dysfunctional behaviors at work, burnout, absence, accidents, turnover, and low performance.
This program is an excellent opportunity for human resources professionals to develop practical skills for working in various organizational environments. Students will learn about issues of critical relevance for business, such as employees’ well-being, performance, and turnover. The teaching process focuses on understanding the mechanisms of specific organizational issues (e.g., burnout, work engagement, counterproductive work behaviors, talent development, performance management), on explaining models and practical tools for assessing work phenomena and on designing effective interventions. The courses are taught by academic staff that holds an extensive research experience in the field, while also expanding upon an evidence-based consultancy approach.
