Comment from our "Assisting the Unemployed in the Grieving Cycle"

Hi Terry, I really enjoyed attending your “Assisting The Unemployed in the Grieving Cycle” workshop this past Thursday (10/30)  in Orlando.  I was familiar with the grieving process, but never thought to apply that information to the unemployed population that I work with.  

Now I realize that many of the Military Spouses I work with are definitely traveling  through  a “grieving process”.  This can be intensified because their families have just gone a PCS (Permanent Change of Station) where many of them previously had a great job, established support system, and a ton of community resources at their fingertips. 

Now they are starting all over in unfamiliar territory. Thanks again for your interesting and informative presentation.

Teacher's Note:

I had Mr. Carlile in to do some training with my ninth grade technology student earlier in the year.  The engagement he developed with these students was outstanding. Soft skill training and real world scenarios made my students think. He engaged them in activities that they could use in developing clearer career paths. He has been described by my students as "energetic, down to earth, and fun". He has certainly been an asset to my Freshman class!
