Unemployment from a psychological perspective

This talk was conducted in the auxiliary seminar for the course Employment- and Organizational Psychology by a group of three students of which I was one.

After a short clarification of some important vocabulary, we supplied an overview of the employment-related legislation of the last ten years in Germany, with a strong focus on the Hartz laws. As a little intermezzo, we showed an excerpt from Volker Pispers' cabaret programme concerning Hartz IV. After that, we explained the details of a study about the subjective wellbeing of long-term unemployed people in relation to an initative called Arbeitsbeschaffungsmaßnahmen. We concluded the talk with a plenary discussion on some specialized questions.
