Human behaviour in the Australian workplace is analysed by comparing and contrasting four psychological perspectives: psychoanalysis, behaviourism, dispositionalism and existentialism. Topics include personality, motivation, occupational stress, mental health and counselling. Of special relevance is an analysis of individual differences which includes a critical evaluation of the role and use of psychological tests in management.
