Discussion for Building Resilience - Trainees with Children

Discussion Group/Brown Bag: Personal Development

Nov 28, 2018

Speaker(s): Annie Scheiner, LCMFT, OITE Wellness Advisor
This event is recommended for: Postbacs; Graduate Students; Postdocs/Fellows.

Join us for a discussion of your experience as an NIH trainee with children.  Do you feel torn between having a successful scientific career and parenthood responsibilities?  Do you want to hear how other parents are balancing their work and personal time to ensure self-care and prevent burnout?  Do you feel that you are lacking a local support network?  Learn how to better manage your daily parenting challenges, negative feelings, and stress associated with being both a parent and scientist.  This OITE discussion group is for trainees at all training levels (postbacs, grads, and postdocs). 

Please join us on Wednesday, November 28th at 10:15 am for a discussion with OITE Wellness Advisor, Annie Scheiner.  The discussion group provides a welcoming and confidential space to explore positive and proactive methods to build resilience and self-care skills. Even if you can’t join us for the entire hour, we encourage you to still attend.  We would rather you come late or leave early, than not come at all.
