"Forms of unemployed adaptation to situational hardships of life" is based on results
of surveys in a number of Russian regions. Theoretical model of the study is based
on concepts of marginality and copy behavior, as well as on social psychology approach.
10 basic types of unemployed behavior are described. Writing of specifics of their
relationships with government, authors state either struggle against it, or rent
behavior, or alternative life style. Within eventual new status forms, inconstructive
forms are described as follows: protective behavior, avoidance, chaotic search; or
intermediate forms: search under lacking information, productive dependence; or constructive
ones: pointed use of one's interpersonal networks resources, active concretization
of self-image, of one's plans and evaluations of current affairs, finishing of current
life situation context.
