Research in Occupational Stress and Well Being
The objective of this series is to promote theory and research in the increasingly growing area of occupational stress, health and well being, and in the process, to bring together and showcase the work of the best researchers and theorists who contribute to this area. As you know, questions of work stress span many disciplines and many specialized journals. Our goal is to provide a multidisciplinary and international collection that gives a thorough and critical assessment of knowledge, and major gaps in knowledge, on occupational stress and well being. Research in Occupational Stress and Well Being is focused on power, politics and influence. It has been widely accepted that power, politics and influence are pervasive within most social entities, including work organizations. However, research on the role of social influence in the stress process is still needed. This volume will focus on the connections between social influence processes, broadly defined (e.g., power, politics, political skill and influence), and employee stress, health, and well-being.

 Puppet or Puppeteer? The Role of Resource Control in the Occupational Stress Process

            Paul E. Spector

Psychology, management, and other researchers from the US, Australia, and Israel offer six essays on the role of power, politics, and influence in occupational stress and well-being. They consider the negative and positive aspects of organizational politics, including how they are perceived as challenge and hindrance stressors that affect employee outcomes through their influence on the social environment; associations between positive and negative politics and employee engagement, particularly how psychological safety, availability, and meaningfulness explain perceptions of politics and engagement; the negative implications of the use of intimidation and pressure by supervisors; the concept of objective and subjective powerlessness and impacts on psychological, physical, and behavioral responses; organizational politics within the context of large-scale organizational change initiatives; and how the control and strategic management of resources plays a role in the occupational stress process.
