Spring 2016 provides great TIBBS events

Cancer Cell Biology Trainees may be especially interested in two upcoming events from TIBBS:

Work/Life Integration: A Different Approach to Balancing Work and Life

January 26 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Most of us have heard the term, “work/life balance” which may lead one to think that doing all we want to do requires some sort of juggling act. The goal of this program is to provide participants with a different way to view work life “balance.” The discussion will focus on integration and what this means in terms of how to incorporate the varied roles we all have within our lives. Suggestions for how to think about these roles as a both/and rather than an either/or scenario within our lives will be provided. A values inventory will be shared as well as guidance on how to set realistic, achievable goals on a day-to-day basis.

Facilitator: Rhonda Sutton, Ph.D. LPC, LPCS
