PINHEIRO, Luciana Nacif; FERREIRA, Maria Cristina  and  MOURAO, Luciana. Impact of Armazém das Artes Project on Participants´ Well-being. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.2, pp. 494-513. ISSN 1808-4281.

Well-being at work have been highlighted in the organizational psychology literature. The impact of the Armazém das Artes project on the well-being of its participants was investigated. The sample had included 97 employees from a federal university. The sample included men and women, divided in an experimental group (N=48) and in a control group (N=49). The experimental group had participated in 8 weekly sessions where they have learned a variety of carton crafts techniques, while the control group didn`t received any intervention. Both groups answered to questionnaires that evaluated their well-being levels. This evaluation was made in the beginning of the first session (pre-test) and in the end of the last session (post-test). The results of a mix ANOVA 2 (group) X 2(time), with repeated measures in the time factor and independent measures in the group factor had showed that the scores in the affective organizational commitment and the positive affects toward work have been significantly higher, while the emotional exhaustion have been significantly lower at the end of intervention. We concluded that the project was effective in contributing to the user's higher well-being.
