Book Description:
Unemployment is a considerable source of social distress, leading to loss of social contact and activity, increased isolation from others, increased family tensions and loss of self-esteem and self-confidence. This book gives a review of the results of follow-up studies and controlled psychological autopsy studies in terms of the association between unemployment and suicide. Furthermore, after three decades of market-oriented reforms along the Washington consensus, full employment has not yet been materialized in developing countries despite significant gains in fiscal and monetary discipline, and price stability. The current study analyzes the sources of structural transformation in the labor markets of developing countries after liberalization and structural adjustment programs using Turkey as a case study. The nature, causes, consequences and solutions of the problem of child labor in Turkish context is examined as well. This book also explores the effects of liberalization programs on labor market flexibility, distribution, wage-productivity link, and gender division in labor markets. Moreover, in the UK, participation in higher education has risen over the past two decades, along with a shift of the costs of higher education onto the individual. This book examines the role of term-time employment on UK higher education students. Also discussed in this book is the evidence concerning the "boy crisis" - the claim that the most recent generation of men are acquiring less education than women. The causes of and consequences for racial, ethnic and gender gaps in educational attainment are also explored. Other chapters discuss youth in substance abuse treatment and how treatment agencies may play a large role in transitioning youth to the workforce. How youths and adults with disabilities can maximize their potential for success in the post-secondary workplace is examined as well.
