The new federal guidelines to help employers understand how the Americans with Disabilities Act applies to employees with an emotional disorder make it imperative that occupational psychologists and front line managers identify those workers who have an emotional disorder and distinguish them from those workers who are lazy or have a bad attitude. Kantor provides vital clinical information that assists professional consultants and supervisors alike in complying with the new guidelines while distinguishing true disability from behavioral problems which call for administrative action. Avoiding stress-heavy theory and one-size-fits-all approaches to treating occupational disorders, Kantor provides a comprehensive view of factors contributing to workplace traumas and presents an incremental approach to developing correct disgnoses and effective clinical therapies. Kantor describes both the familiar and the less familiar occupational disorders, shows how they develop as a result of dysfunctional interaction between workers and their environment, and suggests case-specific methods for preventing and curing many of the most debilitating workplace traumas.

?[K]antor's book creditably reconstructs DSM-IV descriptions and criteria to work-related symptomatology. And this in itself is no small feat....I was particularly impressed with Kantor's brilliant articulation of the dynamics of the "hysterical personality disorder"--not to be confused with DSM's Histrionic Personality Disorder--in occupational settings. These articulations reflect the author's highly developed powers of clinical observation skills and formulation prowess.?-Organizational & Occupational Psychiatry
