Don't have an account? This chapter looks at a number of key challenges facing psychological contract researchers that need to be addressed to strengthen psychological contract theory and make it more useful to practitioners. The challenges faced by psychological contract researchers cover a wide range of areas, including the definition of the psychological contract, psychological contract theory, and appropriate ways of researching the psychological contract. This chapter considers in more detail some of the definitional issues raised earlier and the conceptual problems they raise, and suggests ways in which aspects of the psychological contract concept can be clarified and developed. Six key six challenges are examined: what are the differences between expectations, obligations, and promises? What is meant by implicit promises?

Theses | Curtin University, Perth, Australia
This four-year general applied psychology program emphasises the application of knowledge to problems arising in professional practice, and graduates are equipped to move directly into the workforce as provisionally registered psychologists. It also provides an understanding of the theoretical framework within which various approaches and techniques have been developed. Experimental design relevant to applied research is an important part of the course. Whilst the principal focus is on psychology, the course also provides a broad appreciation of human behaviour and experience by including studies in health sciences. Due to accreditation requirements, students not attaining a credit average in their second and third year core psychology units will be required to exit the course with the Bachelor of Science Psychology award.
