|Start With The Basics|
As an educator, I have always been a fan of Abraham Maslow and his Theory of Human Motivation (1943). I am sure that you have seen some version of this theory at some point in your life. It is often depicted as a pyramid consisting of five levels: the lowest level is associated with physiological needs, while the uppermost level is associated with psychological needs, particularly those related to identity and purpose. In his theory Maslow believes that lower level needs must be met and satisfied prior to one having the ability to moving forward to satisfy higher level needs. The higher needs in this hierarchy only come into focus when the lower needs in the pyramid are met.

I believe that this is a good place to start, and can be used as a guide, when faced with a traumatic life experience like becoming suddenly unemployed.
