Stress Management for the Unemployed

By Lois Zyks

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1984

In an attempt to deal constructively with the increasing numbers of unemployed Jewish men and women in the Chicago and Suburban area, three Federation agencies of the Metropolitan Federation of Metropolitan Chicago combined their personnel, skills and resources to implement a unique program dealing with the physical and emotional stresses of unemployment. They report learning that the power of the individual to believe in himself and his skills can conquer anxieties and difficulties. They also discovered that peer support is often the key to opening up apprehensions. Each agency participating in this program experienced a sense of well being in the community.
