Stress Interventions with Trade Unions

Personnel Review

ISSN: 0048-3486

Article publication date: 1 February 1991



The focus is on the planning and implementation of stress interventions within trade union organisations in the UK. Case material from two trade union projects is presented, together with an overview of some of the key areas of potential stress in such organisational settings. In addition, an approach to stress diagnosis and management is outlined which does not separate the individual from the organisation in an artificial way. The emphasis is rather on the interactive processes which underpin individual and organisational existence. This theoretical stance has a number of implications for intervention strategies, and these are also outlined. A review of some of the key points which are relevant to the planning of stress interventions in the organisational setting is presented in conclusion.
