Abstract

This chapter explores the relationship between two focal social stressors (interpersonal conflict and organizational politics) and psychological strains (job satisfaction and psychological symptoms). We also examine an unexplored mechanism of how self-efficacy and active coping might protect employees from negative effects of social stressors.
