Discover the latest advancements in the field of positive organizational psychology

Positive Organizational Psychology Interventions: Design and Evaluation delivers a concise description and synthesis of positive organizational psychology theory, empirical research, and evidence-based applications. Based on a thorough review of the peer-reviewed literature by the accomplished and distinguished editors, the book offers readers an encapsulation of the growth of the field and the latest state-of-the-art theory and research-driven interventions in this emerging area.

You'll discover the breadth and depth of the field of positive organizational psychology grounded in empirical research and evidence-based practice, thereby avoiding some of the frivolousness and optimism sometimes associated with the field. The book provides an honest and balanced view of positive organizational psychology by acknowledging the limitations of the research, relevant critiques, and the extent to which findings can be applied.

Finally, the volume will serve as a useful tool to inspire ideas for further research, evidence-based applications and intervention design, and for facilitating class exercises, discussions, projects, and more. Readers will also benefit from the inclusion of:
* A thorough introduction to positive organizational psychology theory, research, intervention design and evaluation
* An exploration of positive psychological states, traits, and processes in the workplace, as well as strengths and virtues at work
* Practical discussions of flow and work engagement, job crafting, strengths-focused performance reviews, positive organizational capacity building, positive cultural humility, a positive approach to sexual harassment prevention, and positive leadership development
* An analysis of positive organizational development, appreciative inquiry, and positive human resource practices, as well as workplace well-being, thriving, and flourishing

Perfect for undergraduate and graduate students in psychology programs, Positive Organizational Psychology Interventions: Design and Evaluation will also earn a place in the libraries of practitioners of positive psychology who seek a one-stop reference for the latest developments in positive organizational psychology scholarship.
