Instructors: Sarah Dobkin, LCSW & J/ennifer Carlin, LMFT

In this 3-hour workshop, we will explore the challenges emerging leaders and managers face in the equally demanding role of parenting young children. Instructors J/ennifer Carlin, LMFT and Sarah Dobkin, LCSW will define what it means to "be enough", clarify the mistaken concept of "work-life balance", and identify troublesome thought patterns. We'll dissect the "never enough" trap and share skills and strategies for developing feelings of "enoughness" both at home and at work to enhance student confidence in both areas.

The workshop is taught online through Zoom. Students will need a computer or smart phone with webcam and microphone, internet and web streaming capacity, and the Zoom application installed to their device.
