This unit aims to promote an understanding of diverse psychological perspectives and research findings on the practice of management. 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.
