Title Psychological mechanisms of coping with job loss
Bibliographic information 2003, Vol.34, No.2, p.73-83. Illus. 27 ref.
Abstract A classification of various ways of coping with job loss is presented. The classification is based on the psychological model of coping behaviour regulation. Data obtained from a group of 400 unemployed persons who responded to a questionnaire allowed to identify four types of coping programs. These types differ firstly in terms of choices made by the unemployed persons during consecutive stages of the coping process and secondly, relative to the choices, in the amount of psychological costs involved in the process.
