The Psychological Effects of Unemployment on a Group of Adolescents.
Doherty, Jim; Davies, Carol
Educational Review, v36 n3 p217-28 Nov 1984
Three groups of 50 adolescents each (those employed since school, those involved in Youth Opportunities Programs YOP!, and those unemployed since school) were administered the Goldberg General Health Questionnaire, the Rosenberg Depression Scale, and two self-esteem inventories. The unemployed youth had lower self-esteem, more psychosomatic symptoms, and were more unhappy. The YOP experience mitigated some effects of unemployment. (SK)
