The focus of this thesis is on work wellbeing. The interface and tensions between organisational psychology researchers and practitioners are explored through the lens of work wellbeing. Prevailing disciplinary values favour a form of natural or experimental science over interpretivist science. (Experimental science is a general term used throughout the thesis to include experiments, quasi experiments, and quantitative surveys.) The study proposed additions to the theoretical and methodological repertoire to facilitate the applicability of research in work settings.
