Society For Occupational Health Psychology

The Society for Occupational Health Psychology (SOHP) is a learned society with as focal point the "generation, dissemination, and application of scientific knowledge in order to improve worker health and well-being." The goals of the society are threefold. First, SOHP promotes psychological research on important questions pertaining to occupational health. Second, SOHP encourages the application of research to improve the health and safety of people who work. Third, the society works to enhance undergraduate and graduate training in the field of occupational health psychology.

SOHP, together with the American Psychological Association (APA) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), organizes every two years an international conference dedicated to research and practice in occupational health psychology. The organization also provides resources that are useful in research, teaching, and practice. SOHP and APA sponsor an online listserv to promote discussion and information sharing regarding occupational health psychology. SOHP also publishes a newsletter at least twice per year in order to keep members abreast of organizational developments. Through an arrangement SOHP has with APA, members of the society receive a subscription to the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology. Beginning with an agreement in 2008, the society coordinates member benefits and international conferences with the European Academy of Occupational Health Psychology (EA-OHP).

    ... married women work and neglect their children because the duties of the homemaker become so depreciated that women feel compelled to take a job in order to hold the respect of the community. It is one thing if women work, as many of them must, to help support the family. It is quite another thing—it is destructive of woman’s freedom—if society forces her out of the home and into the labor market in order that she may respect herself and gain the respect of others.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    A large part of the popularity and persuasiveness of psychology comes from its being a sublimated spiritualism: a secular, ostensibly scientific way of affirming the primacy of “spirit” over matter.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    Of health and toilets, private and corporal glee,

    There is, I confess, a hazard to the philosophical analysis of humor. If one rereads the passages that have been analyzed, one may no longer be able to laugh at them. This is an occupational hazard: Philosophy is taking the laughter out of humor.
    A.P. Martinich (b. 1946)

    He is as antisocial as a flea. Clearly, such people are undesirable, and a society in which they can flourish has something wrong with it.
