Documenting a city's history
In a May 16 New York Times article, Professor of Counseling Robert Chope discussed the increase in patients speaking to counselors and therapists about job-related concerns. Chope, who is president of the employment counseling division of the American Counseling Association, said the way job-related counseling is viewed has changed with the economic downturn. "It used be seen as not ‘real’ mental health work." Now there is more recognition that job issues "have a huge mental health component," he said, and a "stronger move to understand the context of jobs, toxic co-workers and the ramifications of massive layoffs."
