Seminarhold 1: Paul Conway - The psychosocial work environment, well-being, stress and organizational behaviours.
Which factors of the psychosocial work environment can lead to stress, poor work-related well-being, and negative organizational behaviours? And which factors are conducive to positive outcomes instead? How to assess the psychosocial work environment in work organizations, and which elements should be considered when developing and evaluating interventions?

These are common questions facing occupational psychologists why they deal with issues related to the psychosocial work environment. The aim of this seminar is to introduce students to theories and methods relevant to the understanding and handling of specific problems connected with the quality of the psychosocial work environment in work organizations. 

Key topics addressed in the course are:

  • theoretical and methodological approaches to the understanding of different aspects of the psychosocial work environment and their association with employee well-being and behaviour;

  • measurement of the psychosocial work environment;

  • the content and process elements of occupational health intervention.

Exam regulations seminarclass 1:
Students must deliver three written assignments in all.

For each of the first two assignments (max. 2 pages), students must choose and discuss a specific problem related to a theme covered during the seminar. In class, students are expected to present and discuss the two chosen themes and use the feedback received to revisit their written assignments.

For the last written assignment (max. 4 pages), the students  should demonstrate that they can profitably use the theories and methods learnt during the seminar to analyse a concrete problem (self-chosen by the students) related to the course topics.   

The 200 pages of self-selected literature should be distributed across the three assignments. The students are expected to select primary literature reflecting the state of the art of knowledge in the relevant research fields.  

Students will also be requested to actively participate in case-based learning activities in class. The outputs of the casework will be presented and discussed by the students in class.

Each student must keep an assessment portfolio that includes all the written assignments, the self-chosen literature and a short reflection on the group activities they partook in during the course. The assessment portfolio must be handed in to the teacher at the end of the seminar. 

The pass/fail decision will be taken based on an overall assessment of the student's active participation in the classes, the relevance of the subjects covered in the written assignments, and the level of command demonstrated in using relevant literature, theories and methods to analyze key questions relevant to the course topics.
