EMOTIONAL HEALTH AND WORK:

Work forms an integral part of our sense of being… both as individual and in realizing one’s innate potential.

This besides the fact that most of us have to work to earn a living!

Our focus is to help clients to cope with work stresses and adaptations. Also to look at options in terms of career choice and career change when necessary.

In the history of work, employees for many decades were taken for granted by many employers and the only principle that mattered was the profit principle. Though this may still be the case, there has been a recent shift of business realizing the value of it’s workers as the main ingredient for success

Research also has shown that work is an important factor in overall wellness as well as later fulfilment in life.

As such a new term WORK DYSFUNCTIONS  has been coined (Rodney L. Lowman; Counselling & Psychotherapy of Work Dysfunctions, 1993, APA)

Treatment for work dysfunctions requires, according to Lowman, a particular and not overly individualized approach by Health Professionals - suitable for today’s complex work environments.

Goal directed and brief interventions, with work as the primary focus, are considered suitable.

The following are some aspects suggested by Lowman (p 43) as a Useful “Clinical Taxonomy of Psychological Work-Related Dysfunctions”:

*     Disturbances in the capacity to work, e.g. underachievement, procrastination, occupational misfit, organizational misfit, fear of either success or failure.
*      Patterns of over commitment; Type A personality, Burnout, ‘work-addiction (workaholism).

· Work related anxiety and work-related depression.
· Personality dysfunctions & work: e.g.. problems with authority at work.
· Life role – Conflicts e.g. work-family conflict.
· Situational Stress e.g. reactions to changes in work-role (new job).
· Dysfunctional working conditions: Defective job design (role overload, ambiguity);         defective supervision.
· Dysfunctional interpersonal relationships. Counselling and Consultations can be arranged either privately or within organizations.
