Gender Differences in Responses to Unemployment.
Leana, Carrie R.; Feldman, Daniel C.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v38 n1 p65-77 Feb 1991
Study of how 94 men and 63 women perceived and coped with job loss found no significant differences in psychological and behavioral distress. However, men relied more on problem-focused activities such as job search, whereas women relied more on symptom-focused activities such as seeking social support. Marital status affected coping behavior and reaction, but this was not gender related. (SK)
