Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Organizational health impact assessment
by Handley, Kyle D., Psy.D., Adler School of Professional Psychology, 2013, 113; 3578546
Abstract (Summary)

The following dissertation offers a theoretical justification for the use of a modified Mental Well-Being Impact Assessment (MWIA) for use in organizational settings. An Organizational Health Impact Assessment (OHIA) was developed by evaluating the utility of the components of the MWIA when applied to a business environment, through analysis of the theoretical and empirical support for these components in the organizational literature, with special consideration given to the relationship between social justice, mental well-being, and business outcomes. Modifications to the MWIA model and process, including the Desktop Screening Tool, are recommended in order to better align the OHIA with organizational practice. Future research directions for determining the efficacy of the OHIA in practical business environments are discussed.
