  1. Psychological training improves mental health and job-finding among unemployed people.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    ICOH Working Group [Unemployment and Health]. Paris, FRA, 1998/09/25.

    The negative psychological effects of unemployment are well documented : lowered self-esteem and confidence, social isolation, anxiety, depression, reduced life satisfaction, hopelessness about the future.

    Further, it has been established that these effects often prevent re-employment.

    The need for interventions to help unemployed people to minimise such psychological effects is clearly warranted, yet little psychological assistance is usually given.

    This paper describes a psychological intervention based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), the principles of which have been successfully applied through individual psychotherapy to several psychiatric disorders.

    We adapted these principles to create a group-training programme for a non-psychiatric group - long term (>12 months) unemployed.

    The results demonstrated that significantly more of the CBT group than the control group improved on measures of mental health, as well as on success in job-finding : four months after the completion of training 34% of the CBT group c.f. 12% of the control group had found full-time work.

    Taking part-time and temporary work into account, these figures increased to 49% (CBT group) and 28% (control group), indicating the value of psychological interventions in reducing the negative psychological effects of unemployment, and helping the unemployed find jobs.
