Getting to UP from DOWN: Depression and Job Loss by David Petrovay, PHD

  • This location is shown only to members

Biography: David Petrovay, PhD

I have 14 years' experience working with hundreds of individuals to help them identify career goals, create resumes to reflect their skills and accomplishments, prepare for interviews, and learn ways to effectively communicate. I have worked in a variety of settings including schools, public government agencies, non-profit agencies, and private practice. I hold a Masters degree in Counseling and Guidance and a Doctorate with a focus on career development both from the University of Arizona. I participate  in the California Career Development Association and the Bay Area Association for Personality Type. I am an active member of the Menlo Park and San Mateo Chambers of Commerce. I have done presentations on job-related topics to groups including the San Mateo County Women's Council of Realtors, CSIX Saratoga, CSIX Peninsula, and ProMatch.

Presentation Description

Losing a job can be devastating ranking just behind death and divorce in its physical and emotional effects. Learn how a job loss is affected by the grieving process and, in particular, the Depression stage. Whatever stage of grieving you are experiencing may be present in your job search whether or not you are aware of it. This could be contributing to the obstacles you are encountering. You will participate in a short self-evaluation of your current emotional state and how this reflects in your  job search. The main focus of the presentation will then move to techniques for addressing how to move to the next stage of loss in positive ways.
