This unique book examines how psycho-social factors like family, conflict, emotional stress, addiction, and financial pressures can impact an employees health and well-being. A Pastoral Counsellors Model for Wellness in the Workplace explores the workplace reality that illness and injury are not just the result of simple linear causes. Companies have data to determine how much they spend on insurance and workers compensation claims but no way to measure the effects absenteeism, productivity, quality of work, and employee morale have on operating expenses. Using a holistic model of understanding, employers may now consider that an injury may be the result of an employees depression, an accident might be caused by substance abuse, and an illness could be brought on by tensions in an employment setting.The book is an invaluable tool for pastoral counsellors, chaplains, human resources managers, employee assistance professionals, psychotherapists, health care professionals, and educators.
