Transitioning In and Out of the Workplace
While the ubiquity of the stay at home mom has faded with the changing cultural landscape, many women and men are opting to rethink the ways in which they choose to raise young children. Supporting a family on one income can be quite difficult, and figuring out how to create flexibility enough in your career to make space for a child can be yet another source of additional stress. And of course, just as difficult as choosing to leave the workforce can be, so can re-entering it after a period of absence. For more information, please see CHALLENGES OF PARENTHOOD.
Unemployment is perhaps one of the most stressful experiences one can face. Whether a result of a poor economic climate, recent completion of a portion of your education, or something else, the absence of a steady income and a regular schedule can not only be extremely frustrating, but can exacerbate other pre-existing issues in one’s life. Individuals who are unemployed and actively seeking out work often experience feelings of anxiety or depression, which may worsen over time.
