Striking a Work-Life Balance: free workshop, Sept. 13

Work-life balance is an all-too-common phrase these days, but what exactly is it, and how can it be achieved? Learn the answers to these and more questions at the upcoming Striking a Work-Life Balance workshop.

The event, which may be of particular interest to faculty and staff, is free and will take place on Thursday, September 13 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in room 386 of the Lory Student Center.

Modern-day plague

Many working adults struggle to find the time and resources necessary to accomplish everything they want to at work and in their personal lives. This work-life imbalance can lead to a variety of negative outcomes, including chronic stress, job and life dissatisfaction and poor mental and physical health.

Attendees of the workshop will learn specific, research-backed strategies to help manage the demands of both work and personal life. There will also be an opportunity to participate in a breakout session and ask questions during a general Q&A session at the end of the workshop.

The training will be led by Associate Professor of Psychology Gwen Fisher, director of the occupational health psychology program, and graduate student Kelly Cave.
