Discussion for Building Resilience - Trainees with Children

Discussion Group/Brown Bag: Personal Development; Wellness

Building 2, Room 2W15
Nov 15, 2019 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Speaker(s): Laurie Chaikind McNulty, LCSW-C, 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.  Many of our trainees with children feel torn between having a successful scientific career and parenthood responsibilities.  It is helpful to hear how other parents are balancing their work and personal time to ensure self-care and prevent burnout.  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 Friday, November 15th at 1:00pm for a discussion with OITE Wellness Advisor, Laurie Chaikind McNulty.  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.
