Working through Redundancy. A Self-Help Learning Pack. Second Edition.
This packet is intended to provide support for those facing job layoff or who have recently been laid off. Its aim is to provide a basic framework for decision making, together with relevant information, countering the disorientation that job loss often leaves in its wake. Notes for trainers offer suggestions for use of the pack. An introduction describes how the material is arranged and how the person experiencing job loss is to use it. Seven sections address the following: the impact of layoff, short-term strategies, managing one's money, one's personal audit, job winning, tackling training, and further steps. Individual sections all have the same format: a contents list, list of the targets that the section will help the user achieve, information, activities (numbered through the pack from 1-44), comment on activities, a review of one's targets, an action plan for achieving targets that one now needs to reach, and suggestions on where to go next in the pack. A review section is followed by an index. (YLB)
