Speaker: Dr. Paul Flaxman

Summary: In the field of occupational health, there is growing interest in understanding how employees recover from the demands of work during nonwork time (i.e., evenings, weekends, and vacations). Surprisingly few studies have investigated change in well-being variables in and around vacations from work. This presentation will provide a general overview of findings from the vacation literature, considering issues such as how long a vacation effect lasts when we return to work. Paul will then present the findings of two of his team’s studies of school teachers around mid-term and Christmas vacations. A first study examined the influence of “supplemental” working during vacation, and the role of continuing to think about work; and a second study examined the influence of a personality trait (perfectionism) on these processes.
