Psychological detachment from work refers not only to employees avoiding job-related issues in action, but also to the avoidance to thinking about job-related affairs during non-work time. Theories of psychological detachment from work include Resource-Conservation Theory, Moos’s Theory and Work-Family Boundary Theory. Psychological detachment from work was influenced by both individual and situational factors, such as personality, job stressors and modern information technology. Under the current background of work and non-work boundaries permeating increasingly, further research on psychological detachment from work is needed to explore its comprehensive driving factors, effects, boundary conditions and cross-cultural differences.
