Research Focus:

Dr. Michel Larivière is a practicing clinical psychologist whose current research is focused on mental health in the workplace. In particular, he is interested in identifying the factors that predict injury and absenteeism. Drawing from his work in risk prediction, he intends to develop actuarial-type instruments to assist workplace decision-makers on matters of employee injury and illness. Because of their significant human and economic costs, the factors that predict a timely return to work after an illness or injury are also currently being studied by Dr. Larivière.

The results of several large-scale studies on various occupational groups (e.g. health care workers, correctional workers, administrators, tradespersons/labourers, etc.) have been completed and published by Dr. Larivière and a number of collaborators. A unique contribution of this work is the finding that worker attitudes are strong predictors of a workers' overall adjustment. Attitudinal variables contribute significantly to job stress, job satisfaction and the commitment to one's employer. These are in turn related to overall health and putatively, to injury, workplace adjustment, performance, absenteeism, presenteeism, and civility.
