Stress and Distress Among the Unemployed: Hard Times and Vulnerable People

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Broman, Clifford L., V.L. Hamilton, and W.S. Hoffman. 2001. Stress and Distress Among the Unemployed: Hard Times and Vulnerable People. New York: Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers.

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.
