Our approach to working with organization around PH+S issues is informed both by our experiences as clinical psychologists in the healthcare system and as researchers focusing on psychological health issues. We work from the belief that effective intervention involves active participation by all relevant parties with a shared interest in enhancing employee well-being and organizational success. In order to accomplish this, we utilize a collaborative process to understand the specific needs and objectives of the particular workplace. Where it is appropriate, we have developed a method to easily and inexpensively obtain input from an organization’s entire workforce.
This process of Organizational Problem-Solving, brings together organizational decision-makers and key stakeholders to clarify organizational concerns, determine desired outcomes, identify barriers to change, develop realistic and cost-efficient action plans, and evaluate the effectiveness of interventions.
