Conceptualisation of work stress is of crucial importance when developing interventions for workplace. Work - related stress is defined as harmful reaction that people have to undue pressures demands placed on them at work. 1 As many as 440 000 people in UK complain of work - related stress, depression or anxiety that makes them ill; nearly 9. 9 million work days were lost as consequence in 2014 / 2015. Most Recent Health And Safety Executive Report Gives Prevalence Of 1380 And Incidence Of 740 Per 100 000 Workers, And Also Concludes That Work Stress Is More Common In Public Service Institutions. 1 estimated economic costs to British economy as result of stress at work are considerable, with 14. 3 billion lost in / 2014 2 and higher costs in public service amount to 1. 2 billion per year. 3 Work stress can lead to illness, as well as psychological distress and mental illness. 4 5 6 recent increase in work stress has been linked with global and national recession, 7 - 9 job insecurity and work intensity, all leading to greater workloads and more interpersonal conflicts, 3 and can have impact on children's mental health through disrupted parenting. 10 Essentially, stress in workplace may be result of exposure to range of work stressors and appears to arise when people attempt to manage their responsibilities, tasks or other forms of pressure related to their jobs, and encounter difficulty, strain, anxiety or worry in this attempt. 11 Work stressors can take different forms depending on characteristics of workplace, and may be unique to organisation or industry. 12 Theoretical models of stress consider it to be either related to adverse life events and stressful environments or individual's physiological and psychological responses to stressors, or transactional interaction between individual and environment. 13 14 - 17 Although Theoretical models conceptualise stress as result of imbalance between perceptions of external demands and internal resources, consensus between Theoretical academic models and lay representations of definitions of stress is far from clear. Definitions of stress in research literature as well as those reported by lay vary considerably. For example, Kinman & Jones 18 found that there was lack of consensus on conceptualisations of stress, and number of different personal, social, environmental and work - related factors were used to define and interpret meaning of stress. 11 Brooker & Eakin 19 suggest that concepts such as power or control in relation to gender and class are related to stress, yet models of stress do not take them into account. For example, Page et al 20 found that participants perceive stress as feminine trait associated with weakness, thus few people admit to it. Cahil, 16 Cooper et al 13 and Marine et al 21 describe categories of stress management interventions that target individuals or organisations; these can be further segmented as preventive interventions at primary, or tertiary levels.
