‘At last a book has been produced that explains the nature of occupational and organisational psychology. By combining sound academic literature reviews with contributions from experienced practitioners, and thoughtful advice on the ethics and skills of research, this is a “must read” for those either considering entering the profession, or currently studying the discipline’ – Beverly Alimo-Metcalfe Professor of Leadership, University of Bradford School of Management ‘This really useful book will be a key resource for aspiring occupational psychologists. The editors have put together a coherent package that is based on the requirements of the British Psychological Society and provides a clear explanation of the research and practitioner key skills that occupational psychologists need. The editors have assembled a strong team of contributors to provide very readable insights into the work that occupational psychologists actually do’ – Professor Ivan Robertson Robertson Cooper Ltd & Leeds University Business School
