Abstract

This study examines the different impact of work on the physical and psychological health of women and men: how men and women in business and managerial professions perceive the pressures of their work environments and what the consequences (e.g., depression, anxiety, somatic complaints, and drug and alcohol abuse) of these stresses are for the individual. The results indicate significant differences between the working men and women studied in job tension, coping strain, role conflict, and health status but not in styles of coping.
