Managing Stress At Work In A Week
Managing stress just got easier
This book is written for managers as a simple, practical guide to the principles and techniques for managing stress at work. It looks at stress from an organizational perspective as well as highlighting practical steps individual managers can take to enable them to gain competitive advantage through effective management of their most valuable asset - their people. Even if you have no direct line-management responsibilities now, you can use what you have learnt to influence decision-makers,
perhaps even your own line manager, to better manage stress in the workplace.
This book will help you understand what stress is, why we get stressed and some of its physiological and psychological symptoms. You will learn about some of the background research into the psychology of stress and consider a variety of theories and models. More importantly, with this simple guidance, practical techniques and some relevant examples you will be able to create a challenging and supportive environment where people know what is expected, work hard, avoid burnout and make a real impact in your organization.
As well as managing the stress of others at work, you will also find some useful tips and suggestions that you can adopt to take personal charge of your own stress levels, allowing you to relax, keep healthy and stay on top.

- Tuesday: Job roles, responsibility and level of control
- Wednesday: Workload, work pressure and work environment

As the Baby Boomer cohort moves from middle to later adulthood, it is likely this generation will redefine what it means to age. Growing older will no longer be synonymous with loss and decline. In fact, it is true that the majority of older adults today live fulfilling lives. This special issue discusses ways in which older adults can age successfully-that is-how individuals can maintain their physical and cognitive health, as well as maintain a healthy engagement with life. Also addressed are the universal challenges faced by older adults in their pursuit to age successfully. The objective of this collection is to serve as a stimulus to future research on aging and change in the later years of life. It presents an outstanding array of articles that cover a range of central issues in this area of study. Each author provides a unique insight into the mystery and challenge that awaits us all: the ability to age successfully.
Successful Aging As A Contemporary Obsession
In recent decades, the North American public has pursued an inspirational vision of successful aging-striving through medical technique and individual effort to eradicate the declines, vulnerabilities, and dependencies previously commonly associated with old age. On the face of it, this bold new vision of successful, healthy, and active aging is highly appealing. But it also rests on a deep cultural discomfort with aging and being old.
The contributors to Successful Agingas a Contemporary Obsession explore how the successful aging movement is playing out across five continents. Their chapters investigate a variety of people, including Catholic nuns in the United States; Hindu ashram dwellers; older American women seeking plastic surgery; aging African-American lesbians and gay men in the District of Columbia; Chicago home health care workers and their aging clients; Mexican men foregoing Viagra; dementia and Alzheimer sufferers in the United States and Brazil; and aging policies in Denmark, Poland, India, China, Japan, and Uganda. This book offers a fresh look at a major cultural and public health movement of our time, questioning what has become for many a taken-for-granted goal-aging in a way that almost denies aging itself.

Fishing, Foraging And Farming In The Bolivian Amazon
Empirical in character, this book analyses the society-nature interaction of the Tsimane', a rural indigenous community in the Bolivian Amazon. Following a common methodological framework, the material and energy flow (MEFA) approach, it gives a detailed account of the biophysical exchange relations the community entertains with its natural environment: the socio-economic use of energy, materials, land and time. Equally so, the book provides a deeper insight into the local base of sociometabolic transition processes and their inherent dynamics of change. The local community described in this publication stands for the many thousands of rural systems in developing countries that, in light of an ever more globalising world, are currently steering a similar - but maybe differently-paced - development course. This book presents insightful methodological and conceptual advances in the field of sustainability science and provides a vital reader for students and researchers of human ecology, ecological anthropology, and environmental sociology. It equally contributes to improving professional development work methods.
