Work And Care Under Pressure from the Author: Blanche le Bihan. European states representing different welfare regimes are experiencing tensions between changes in the labour market and the caring responsibilities of the households. This book contributes to the analysis of these tensions by focusing on carers "under pressure", who have to juggle work and caring responsibilities. The authors investigate care arrangements set up by working parents of young children and of adults who hold a job while caring for their elderly relatives. Drawing on evidence from six European countries, they combines policy and family levels of analysis. This timely investigation of the generations of men and women who take care of young children or/and elderly relatives while earning a living, is an essential resource for researchers, scholars and policymakers.

Regardless of the task, pressure ruthlessly diminishes our judgment, decision-making, attention, dexterity, and performance in every professional and personal arena. In Performing Under Pressure, Drs. Hendrie Weisinger and J.P. Pawliw-Fry introduce us to the concept of pressure management, offering empirically tested short term and long term solutions to help us overcome the debilitating effects of pressure.

But there are things we can do to diminish its effects on our performance. Performing Under Pressure draws on research from over 12,000 people, and features the latest research from neuroscience and from the frontline experiences of Fortune 500 employees and managers, Navy SEALS, Olympic and other elite athletes, and others. It offers 22 specific strategies each of us can use to reduce pressure in our personal and professional lives and allow us to better excel in whatever we do.
