"This is a much-needed and timely volume on a major, yet often neglected issue in occupational health psychology. A must-read for those who are interested in improving intervention effectiveness." - Toon W. Taris, Department of Work and Organizational Psychology, Utrecht University, The Netherlands

"I want to thank and congratulate the editors and authors for making this book possible. It provides clear evidence of how far we have come in the past 20-30 years, and how far we have yet to go in developing, implementing and evaluating effective interventions that reduce adverse psychological outcomes for workers." - Linda M. Goldenhar, Cincinnati Children's Medical Center, USA
