Abstract

Purpose of Review Technology and globalization have been central forces driving the need for shift work. This review examines recent scientific developments that inform our understanding of how psychological processes contribute to and are impacted by shift work. Recent Findings Nascent research is beginning to expand beyond circadian misalignment to elucidate the phenomenology of shift work and the associated psychological impairments. Psychological processes and their interaction with biology are consid- ered in the pathophysiology of shift work sleep disorder. Additionally, a review of the adverse consequences of shift work in the cognitive, emotional, and psychosocial domains are reviewed and discussed. Summary The phenomenology of shift work encompasses multiple domains of biopsychosocial functioning. As such, interven- tions to reduce the adverse impact of shift work may benefit from an integrated approach. . . . . . Keywords Shift work sleep disorder Circadian rhythms Stress Cognitive functioning Social functioning Affective functioning Introduction early mornings (5 am–8 am, Mon–Fri), 29% worked evenings (7 pm–midnight, Mon–Fri), and 9% worked nights (mid- In a globalizing economy with demands for 24-h consumer night–5 am, Mon–Fri) [3]. In contrast, the distribution of the service, the impact of shift work is increasingly relevant. Shift same work shifts
