Abstract:
Session presented on Monday, July 27, 2015: Purpose: This qualitative study relied on narrative from individuals who had lost their job following injury or illness. Their words revealed experiences that demonstrated a shift in meaning of self associated with acquired disability and job loss. Work serves as an image of social worth and establishes a role within the family. 'Individuals receive information from external sources beginning at a young age that initiates a process that sets in place a range of work life expectations.' Methods: Participates were recruited and agreed to face to face confidential interviews that were conducted. Interviews were transcribed verbatim and analyzed using grounded theory methodology.' Results: Workers who with acquired disabilities expressed a loss of security and role identity individually and within their family role. This loss was seen in workers who are young in their career trajectory and those who had long established work experiences. The family fit of work was expressed as a strong influence on role identity.' Conclusion: Although many workers change jobs and even change job categories during their work life, when workers experience an unplanned job change following an acquired disability, the shift in self identity and self worth is experienced as significant and life changing. This major consequence is often not shared with family, friends, co-workers, or care providers.
