Integrating Organization Studies and Community Psychology
What is it about?
This paper looks at how place and space and community affect how we move around as we go about our working lives. The spaces and places we find ourselves in have a huge effect on our identity and well-being. Two fields of organization studies and community psychology can be brought together because they overlap in sharing a concern over these issues. The paper develops a three-stage model looking at how workers might interpret different places as they travel between them. Overall, considering place, space and community is also important for being more specific about what particular work contexts look like.
Why is it important?
Place, space and geography are crucial to understanding the specific contexts, look and feel of various work environments, and to date community psychology and organizational psychology have developed quite separately, which has hindered recognition of appreciating the different places and spaces workers occupy.
