Industrial & organizational psychology

Occupational adjustment is a persons adaptation to their work. This can be to the physical requirements, for example becoming fitter as a building worker or developing repetitive strain injury through data input or psychological adjustment to the pace of work, and the social challenges of the work place. It can also be conceptualized as a complex biopsychosocial process of change. Think for example of the way shift work can affect many aspects of peoples lives.
