New York City Bar Association Career Search Support Group

On December 2, 2009, the New York City Bar Association will host Dr. Sylvan Schaffer and his career search support group. Dr. Schaffer has a unique approach that will help members cope with the emotional and psychological blocks related to job loss and job search. The support group will:

• Provide a forum for members to discuss the impact of job loss and job search on their daily lives

• Provide insight for members to overcome hurdles to job search, e.g., negative thinking, feelings of shame and diminished self-esteem, depression

• Address the "myths" of what a lawyer can or cannot do, e.g., temporary work, contract work

• Help members refocus their energy on a new venture before abandoning the profession

Dr. Schaffer will present some instructive material, coaching and skills training. There will be ample opportunity for the participants to discuss their particular needs and feelings regarding their situation. There is no fee to attend the group, but registration is required and is ONLY open to New York City Bar Association members.

Wednesday, December 2, 2009, 12 - 1 PM
House of the Association, 42 West 44th Street
Registration: This program is free of charge, however registration is required.
