Five case studies from medical work settings are used in this idiographic analysis of work stress. The situational elements relevant to each person were identified for ...

Few significant results were found for the interaction between country and gender on any of the measures. When the sample as a whole was ex...

The political violence which took place in Northern Ireland was hypothesised (Fraser, Brit. J. Psychiat. 1971; 118: 257–264; Lyons, Brit. J. Psychiat. 1971; 118: 265–273; Lyons, J. Psychosomat. Res. 1979; 23: 373–393) to increase psychological stress in its population. This assumption led to the validity of work conducted in 1992 to assess Belfast dental students' stress to be questioned by researchers. An identical survey of clinical students was conducted in 1995, during the 1994–96 cease-fire...
