Mental Health and the Economy.
Ferman, Louis A., Ed.; Gordus, Jeanne P., Ed.
This volume offers a collection of papers which explores the relationships between major economic changes and individual and collective mental and physical well-being, including individual distress, deviant behavior, and other symptoms of underlying pathology. The contributors examine the processes leading from macroeconomic change to social and psychological outcomes from a variety of conceptual approaches. The focus is largely on individual stress related to unemployment and to work transitions. The papers are entitled: "Economic Circumstances and the Entangling Web of Pathologies;""Health and the National Economy;""Social Support, Person-Environment Fit;""Role Adaptation and the Appraisal of Work-Related Stress;""Economic Deprivation, Social Mobility, and Mental Health;""Economic Changes and Mental Illness;""Psychophysiology of Stress;""Discussion;""Does Economic Change Provoke or Uncover Behavioral Disorder?""Social Support and Stress: Some General Issues and Their Application to the Problem of Unemployment;""Unemployment and Mental Health;""Federal Legislation in Respect to Employee Ownership of Firms;" and "Strategy and Policy."
