This chapter describes a variety of interventions that can be used by occupational health psychologists in their attempts to improve the health of employees and organizations. There is a wide variety of interventions available, many of which are based on strong theories that explain the links between work and well-being. Interventions can be classified according to their objectives into primary, secondary, and tertiary interventions. Examples of each type of intervention are presented in order to give the reader a flavour of intervention practices within organizational settings. This chapter also contains a critical analysis of intervention effectiveness including a detailed discussion of research design, evaluation criteria, and the practical challenges of evaluation research. Both process evaluation and effect evaluation are examined in detail. In closing the chapter the conclusions that can be drawn about intervention effectiveness, and the priorities for the future in research and practice, are presented.
