Enjoy your stress: using Lacan to enrich transactional models of stress
Bicknell, M. and Liefooghe, Andreas (2010) Enjoy your stress: using Lacan to enrich transactional models of stress. Organization 17 (3), pp. 317-330. ISSN 1350-5084.
This article reconsiders stress both theoretically and empirically using a Lacanian perspective. It addresses how Lacan’s concepts of jouissance and desire may be employed to provide a rich overlay to transactional models of stress that engages with unconscious aspects of appraisal. In doing so, it challenges the dichotomy between stress and enjoyment.
