"Career & Parenthood - Managing the Mental Load" Seminar on 29 September 2021 and Group Coaching
15 September 2021, by Familienbüro
How do we juggle work life balance when “life” comes with such a huge mental load? When the family to-do list is three times as long as the work to-do list and it is you feel like you are always the one that has to remember. The thinking part of having children is permanent and it is exhausting. It is invisible, unmeasurable and often inescapable.
How do we thrive at work whilst navigating the worry and guilt of managing a family at home? How do we learn to share the planning and management of our homes and not just the delegation of a never-ending task list in our minds? It is possible.
The Human Resources Development department and the family office organize this online seminar with Dr. Desiree Dickerson for doctoral researchers and postdocs with family commitments, to explore what mental load is and how it manifests in our daily lives. Further information and registration on the Human Resources website.
Additionally, they offer the possibility to attend a group coaching session with Dr. Dickerson for those who participated in this event. Please register here if you like to attend such a session.
