New book out by Pernille Steen Pedersen
Stress and shame in working life
How can we work together to prevent stress at work?
This question is at the heart of Pernille Steen Pedersen's research, and in the book Stress og skam i arbejdslivet (in Danish) she puts it under the microscope. Based on everyday work experiences, Pernille Steen Pedersen shows us how the natural shame we can all feel as human beings can, in the worst case, develop into a destructive force and trigger stress.
Shame is a universal human emotion that marks human dependence. It affects not only our stress levels, but also our work performance and the way we perceive ourselves and others.
The book explores shame as a key stressor in vivid and accessible language, and presents groundbreaking new ways for managers and employees to work on stress prevention. Pernille Steen Pedersen presents a strong and convincing argument for why and how we should build a stronger culture of dialogue in Danish workplaces.
The book is a guide to joint prevention for all workplaces, employees and managers who want to understand a new dimension of stress and how to deal with it.
