Stress and Distress Among the Unemployed: Hard Times and Vulnerable People (Plenum Studies in Work and Industry)

by

Stress and Distress Among the Unemployed: Hard Times and Vulnerable People (Plenum Studies in Work and Industry) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Employing both large-scale surveys and in-depth interviews, the authors document the mental health effects on workers caused by the closure of four General Motor plants. They paint a portrait of how the social context in which these workers lived played a critical role in their experiences of unemployment or of keeping their jobs when others around them lost theirs. More than simply a study of unemployment and mental health, this book is also a story of coping and resilience.
