Abstract:

The contributors to this volume cover core issues in psychology and work and develop a sophisticated perspective on issues that range from the individual in systems, to innovation and change, to new approaches to management and career patterns, through employment and its effect on family systems. Taken together, these lectures amply demonstrate the vitality and timeliness of psychology and its usefulness in illuminating and clarifying the trends and issues for a society that must grapple with changes already upon us.

The volume should appeal to scholars and professional practitioners, to students who are just beginning their training in the field, and to nonpsychologists who wish to stay informed about current issues in the psychology of learning. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved).
