Title:
Managing work-life balance - a workshop for practitioners
Authors:
Kinman, Gail; McDowall, Almuth
Abstract:
To share best practice and frameworks for interventions. We will present delegates with case studies of WLB interventions. These will be based on our personal experience of practice and research, as well as derived from other interventions that have emerged from the peer reviewed literature and the public domain. Each case study will be reviewed by small groups of delegates in terms of: (a) evidence-base; (b) 'face validity'; (c) fitness for purpose; (d) acceptability by organisations and employees; (e) potential generalisability to other organisational contexts. Practitioners will also be invited to reflect on their own practice situations, giving delegates the opportunity to engage with prominent academics and experienced practitioners in the field. We will also provide delegates with tips for further reading and professional development. The findings will be used to inform the content of a factsheet, which will provide occupational psychologists with a "tool-box" of evidence-based strategies to help their clients manage the work-home interface more effectively. In 2012, the WLB Working Group published three factsheets (targeted at employees, managers and coaches) which covered the risk factors for work-life conflict and the potential impact. These factsheets were very well received and are currently used widely by practitioners, employees and organisations.
