SANZ VERGEL, Ana Isabel. Work-family balance and occupational health: Is this relationship possible?: Current situation in the study of work-family conflict and recovery from stress. Med. segur. trab. [online]. 2011, vol.57, suppl.1, pp.115-126. ISSN 1989-7790.

The economic and social changes of the last years have created new organizational and family structures that affect workers. As a result, new psychosocial risks appear, as the conflict between work and family life. To meet work and family demands, people need time to recover from the expended effort. Thus, to improve the quality of life of the employee, it is necessary to attend to the well-being of the person in general. The aim of this paper is to review the main lines of research emerged during the last decades on these topics. First, we analyze the background and consequences of work-family conflict as well as the main variables affecting this process. Second, we examine recent literature on "recovery from stress", focusing on the strategies that may help workers to overcome the efforts made during the daily routine. Finally, we present the main lines of prevention and intervention in the organizational and individual levels, aimed at reducing job stressors, promoting family-friendly policies and developing recovery strategies.

Palabras clave : Work-family conflict; recovery from stress; family-friendly policies; recovery strategies.
