Poverty and Unemployment

    Abstract

    Although poverty is a global issue profoundly affecting millions of human beings, the psychology literature rarely focuses on this problem. Poverty and Psychology: From Global Perspective to Local Practice seeks to remedy that by bringing together academics, community practitioners, and clinicians who are actively involved in studying the ramifications of poverty in groups and individuals, as well as outlining successful methods of participant intervention. With a focus on positive and critical psychology and the resilience of human spirit, the book brings the psychology of poverty up-to-date with current thinking and scientific approaches, and will inspire and encourage those working in the field. Covering a wide range of settings, from the shanty towns of Brazil and Venezuela, to the inner cities of England and Scotland, to indigenous communities of the Australian outback noted contributors share their direct experiences and a positive message for working toward progressive solutions.
