Technology and Stress in the Workplace: The Role of the Consulting Psychologist.
Poorly planned implementation of microcomputers has been shown to increase stress symptoms. Concerns have also been raised about the impact of new technology on the quality of the work environment. Programming expertise alone is not sufficient to prevent these problems. This paper therefore describes the role that psychologists can play in designing computer systems that both increase productivity and improve the quality of the work environment. A case study of a child welfare agency is discussed. Seven references are included. (Author)
