Occupational Psychology vs Occupational Health
by: Katy


I would like to know what the difference is between Occupational Psychology and Occupational Health?

From working in a private organisation I have developed an interest in pursuing Occupational Psychology and have become aware of using an Occupational Health service as a referral for long-term sickness absence.

Is the occupational health service in Occupational Psychology, or are they not related?

I would so grateful for your feedback.Thanks

Distinct Disciplines

Hi Elizebath

Occupational therapy and occupational psychology are distinct disciplines.

Occupational therapy is a very specific health based job concerned with the assessment and treatment of physical and psychiatric conditions.

Occupational psychology is primarily concerned with performance and psychological wellbeing in the workplace.
