Work-Life Balance: Managing Graduate School Challenges by Developing Positive & Strong Self-Esteem

Choosing to continue your education adds the additional role of “student” to your already busy life, and managing multiple obligations can be a daunting task, especially for women. The feelings of satisfaction that you have with your performance, as well as how you feel valued in all your various roles influence your total self-worth. Is this balance of roles possible? What changes are necessary to make your life at Mines work? And how do you prevent the obstacles, barriers and stresses from harming your health and happiness?
Terre Deegan-Young, Licensed Professional Counselor

Terre worked as a University Counselor at Mines for 21 years. She did her undergraduate work at St. Louis University and received her Master's in Counseling from the University of Colorado - Denver. She began her counseling career in Vietnam, working for the Red Cross. Besides women and self-esteem topics, she enjoys presenting on healthy relationships, cross-racial adoption, gender issues and the difficult but necessary task of parent and college student's emancipation from each other. Her presentations always combine professional advice along with very personal life experiences.
