The grant regards the realization of psychological resilience workshops that will be directed to unemployed persons who are on the brink of the Third Age. Participants are ones that will have recently lost their jobs or are unable to find jobs. The workshops will deal with the emotional and psychological issues related to unemployment and ultimately aim to prevent psychological health problems and social exclusion.
