While there is a large body of literature on defining, conceptualizing and assessing stress and occupational stress, there is relatively little on treating it. This book fills this gap in the literature, by translating standard CBT and schema therapy interventions developed in other settings to the treatment of occupational stress syndromes and work dysfunctions. Standard CBT is now generally considered to be the treatment of choice for relieving the symptoms of many DSM IV (American Psychiatric Association 2000) Axis 1 disorders (Department of Health 2001; National Institute for Clinical Excellence 2004b; Roth and Fonagy 1996) and is thus ideally suited to treat occupational stress syndromes. Schema therapy complements standard CBT by offering a more in-depth individually tailored approach to working with some of the more complex problems encountered in the workplace, especially those of an interpersonal nature. Although it does not currently have an evidence base as strong as standard CBT, it is growing rapidly (Bamber 2004; Lee et al. 1999; McGinn et al. 1995; Schmidt et al. 1995; Shah and Waller 2000; Stopa et al. 2001; Waller et al. 2001; Young and Behary 1998; Young and Brown 2001; Young et al. 1993, 2003).
