Work is often a dominant feature of our overall life. For some, finding an appropriate job may be an overwhelming challenge made difficult by our own insecurity or being unaware of the necessary steps in securing employment. Once employed, work can and very often does bring about pressure and stress, the result of adapting to new roles, duties, responsibilities and the personalities or habits of others in the work place. Particularly stressful are circumstances of being relocated, laid off, fired or denied promotional opportunities.
