This week, were are delighted to present a feature article on work stress. This is a translation of a an article by Christiane Fontaine, editor of our affiliated e-bulletin, Le Bloc-Notes (http://www.opc.on.ca/fls/leblocnote.htm), and it was originally published in July 2002 as "Travailleur serait-il de plus en plus stressant?" We look forward to more such exchanges between Le Bloc-Notes and OHPE.



We think that the topic of work stress is very appropriate for health promotion practitioners. Both in the front-lines and as knowledge workers, we are confronted with stressful situations, co-workers and clients under stress, and organizations struggling to meet competing demands. As employers and employees, advisors and practitioners, we need to be as informed and prepared as possible to respond to stress constructively.
