In January 2022, more than half of American children missed at least three days of school. Even with Omicron receding, the demands on parenthood have been challenging during the pandemic. Faculty parents are not only teaching courses, trying to conduct research and publish, but also caring for and schooling their young children during classroom closures. Meet and connect with others for four weeks as we support and explore strategies to create new boundaries for engaging in work responsibilities, while parenting young children in this new phase in the pandemic.

This four-week confidential therapy group will meet weekly between March 28th to April 18th, 2022.

Group members need to commit to attending all group sessions and a brief (10-minute) pre-group screen. This is a closed group, so space is limited.  

Location:  Zoom link will be provided upon RSVP

RSVP:, Google Form for RSVP also located on Shoreline.
