3 days ago
HAS YOUR PROFESSIONAL IDENTITY CHANGED BY BECOMING A PARENT?
DO YOU STRUGGLE BALANCING AN AMBITIOUS CAREER WITH AN ENGAGED FAMILY LIFE?
ARE YOU CURIOUS HOW YOU COULD "CHOOSE BOTH" A FULFILLING CAREER AND MEANINGFUL HOME LIFE?
Psychological research suggests that pursuit of meaning in both work and parenting is the cornerstone of happiness. However, the act of straddling an ambitious career and being a parent can be overwhelming and destabilizing. Often working parents are left feeling that they are not meeting up to expectations in either role. In this episode, Dr. Diana Hill interviews clinical psychologist Dr. Yael Schonbrun on the concept of "choosing both." Dr. Schonbrun is an assistant professor at Brown University where she specializes in working with new parents and couples. She is also a mother to three young boys. Dr. Schonbrun has written on the psychology of straddling professional goals and an engaged family life in the New York Times article “A Mother’s Ambitions” and blogs on the topic for Psychology Today. Dr. Schonbrun’s book is forthcoming.
