A look at working

workingWork is more than just a 9-to-5 activity. Work is a central aspect of life, providing a source of structure, a means of survival, a connection to others, and optimally a means of self-determination, according to Lynch School of Education Professor David Blustein, who has edited the new Oxford Handbook of the Psychology of Working (Oxford University Press). Bringing together a broad range of scholars and practitioners, Blustein has assembled an expansive examination of the nature of work as well as the people who work and those who want to work. Contributors to the text from Boston College include: Blustein, AJ Franklin, Maureen Kenny, Mary Beth Medvide, and Philip Mirvis. For more, check out this Boston College Chronicle Q&A with Blustein.
