Our expert says:
getting retrenched can be profoundly disappointing and depressing, for anyone. He may be reluctant to l;ook for a new job, or pessimistic about geting one, but refusing to even look is a rather excessive response.
He knows that jobs don't come knocking on the door looking for you. His history of resignations suggest that even if he's actually good at his job, he may have problems getting on with people, and especially in persevering when any difficulties arise. And defeatist, as in the present and the twom previous examples. If a friendly pep talk from you won't work, is there anyone he would listen to ? Would he pay attention if you pointed out how negatively he is affecting his son at a very crucial time in the boy's life ? Is his family accessable, and could they help ?
