Are work injuries related to subsequent mental health problems, or vice versa? In this talk, Dr. Granger provides an overview of his research on this pernicious relationship.
In particular, he will share what is known about the bi-directional relationship and highlight key underlying mechanisms connecting, and conditions shaping, the work injuries-mental health problems relationship.
Finally, he will discuss research and practical implications derived from a better understanding of this bidirectional relationship.
