Chapter 16: Holistic stress: primary, secondary and tertiary interventions

Kahla A. Davis and Valerie J. Morganson


Researchers have called for more holistic theoretical approaches incorporating both distress and eustress. This chapter reviews and culls together scholarship that provides organizational strategies for reducing employee stress and maximizing eustress toward enhanced individual and organizational well-being. Researchers have recently proposed a consideration of stress interventions based on the prevention level they are designed to address: primary, secondary and tertiary. This chapter echoes that framework, considering common and current intervention strategies by stage of prevention.
