This booklet tells the stories of six perople who have waged battles against unemployment and some of the skills they used to help them win. An introduction stresses the importance of resources in helping one through unemployment. Four steps in collecting resources are listed: take stock, regroup, fortify, and mobilize. The major portion of the booklet offers suggestions for following through on these steps. Taking stock involves completing a checklist of financial, emotional, physical, and social needs and then identifying all resources that can be used to combat unemployment. Specific activities are also suggested for each of the other steps. A "Resources Guide and Index" provides charts to assist in beginning a personal resources search. It serves to give an idea of how to work with one's particular situation and to identify and locate the financial, physical health, emotional health, and social health resources needed. A resource worksheet is included. (YLB)
