Laid-off syndrome Workshop focuses on alleviating symptoms HOUSTON — Losing one's job hurts. Not only does being laid off often cause financial crisis, but it also deeply affects self- worth, lifestyle and personal relationships. It evokes what Family Service Center's Lorraine Goldstaub calls the "laid- off syndrome." Goldstaub, a clincial social work consultant, will address this emotional syndrome in "Laid Off:" Who, Me?" — a Family Service Center workshop series scheduled for May 7, 14 and 21 at the Center's central office, 4625 Lillian. The program is free to the unemployed and/or their spouses and will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on consecutive Wednesdays. "Laid-Off: Who. Me?" is offered as a community service by the Center in response to the growing number of lay-offs in the Houston Area resulting from the drop in oil prices. "We have a whole new group of people in Houston who have been laid-off," Goldstaub said. "And there may be others who are experiencing a job loss for a second time. They may have been laid-off several years ago during the first recession, also." Goldstaub said the workshop will focus on alleviating symp- toms of the "laid-off syndrome," including low self-esteem, poor job prospects, self or family- directed anger and depression. Participants who are unemployed will learn to evaluate their past work record and transferable strengths and skills in order to develop new plans for their future work lives. "We will work on understanding the feelings of personal defeat that accompany being laid off," Goldstaub said. "Once these feelings are understood, techniques to change or prevent negative feelings can be learned." Spouses and children of the unemployed person often experience tremendous stress and anxiety. Families experiencing a job loss tend to withdraw from colleagues, relatives and friends and Goldstaub said this is something they must resist. Goldstaub presented "LaidOff: Who, Me?" for many groups of unemployed persons several years ago when a nationwide recession finally hit Houston. Early registration for "LaidOff: Who, Me?" is encouraged.
