Mechanisms of Character Formation: An Introduction to Psychoanalysis

Front Cover
Macmillan, 1920 - Psychoanalysis - 342 pages
Work-related fatalities and injuries occur at unacceptably high rates in both industrial and developing countries. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there were 4.9 million reported workplace injuries in the US in 2001. The direct and indirect economic cost of these injuries is staggering. Despite the importance of the issue, psychologists have not played a major part in studying workplace safety. The psychologists contributing to this book aim to correct this situation by analyzing both the behaviors that lead to accidental injuries in the workplace and the behaviors that can prevent and manage them. This volume points out the wide variety of ways in which I/O psychologists can help reduce unintentional workplace injuries. It will be a valuable addition to the library of psychologists and policymakers interested in job safety issues. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved).
