Moms tackle career issues at Wilton Family Y

Women who have left the professional world to stay at home while their children are young and feel they have lost a part of themselves, are the intended audience of a new class at the Wilton Family Y. Hilary S. Berger, Ed.D., will lead the six-week series that encourages participants to examine their pre-mothering skills, accomplishments and interests and combine them  with volunteer activities and other accomplishments made during the time they have been at home. The goal is gaining a new sense of professional relevance.

The program is “Career Issues for Stay-at-home Moms … More Than Meets the Eye: A Fast Track to Reinvention.” It will be offered on Wednesdays from 10 to noon beginning Jan. 29 through March 5.

Dr. Berger is founder of Work Like a Mother, a career counselor and board certified licensed professional mental health counselor. She taught psychology and career development courses for 20 years, is an author and conducts seminars for large and small audiences. She is also a mother who and elected to leave her full-time career to stay at home with her four children, ages 12-19.

The fee for the six-week series is $225 for Y members and $325 for non-members.  Reservations with payment in advance are required.
