Recreating Your Identity after Job Loss - Episode 6 of "Confronting Job Loss"
Unemployment can shatter the psyche - the sense of fear, futility and worthlessness can be overwhelming. During this traumatic time how can we experience the real presence of God in our lives, his hand directing us, and leading us to true success?

However, for some individuals at least, the pattern of symptoms changes and becomes less severe with age.

Kanner (1973) traced the progress of 96 individuals in their twenties and thirties, whom he had seen as child patients. T
