THE DARK SIDE OF EMOTIONAL LABOUR (Routledge, 2016)

Jenna Ward and Robert McMurray

The Dark Side of Emotional Labour explores the work that the rest of society would rather not think about, the often unseen work that is emotionally disturbing, exhausting, upsetting, and stigmatising. This is work that is simultaneously undesirable and rewarding, work whose tasks are eschewed and yet necessary for the effective function of individual organisations and society at large.
