Stuck in the Middle: Managing Multiple Responsibilities

“Stuck in the Middle” is a self-discovery session on dealing with constant challenges of having family responsibilities, working and being a student.

This self-awareness session will help you understand the feelings of guilt that arise when juggling your role as a student and not always having enough time to spend with your children and/or your loved ones. It’s for everyone who feels overwhelmed.

Most of the exercises are done in pairs and within the group. In this session you will discover your patterns of ‘stuckness’ and learn to convert feelings of being overwhelmed into action, energy and change.

Facilitator: Anna Wesolinska is a Gestalt psychotherapist who has a private practice and has been running workshops at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto, the North York Women’s Centre, and the Family Care Office.

GPS is an initiative from the School of Graduate Studies that comprises a variety of offerings that provide students a full range of optional opportunities for professional skills development at University of Toronto. Your successful completion of GPS will be recognized by a transcript notation.
