Abstract

In terms of clinical practice, the in-depth interviews with older workers conducted for The Couples Managing Change Study highlight the need for counselors to develop sensitivity to why job loss may be an unanticipated event in the lives of older workers, why workers may have failed to prepare effectively, and how social ties and outmoded skill sets limit the prospects of finding new work.
