Northwestern Alumni Career Webinars

December 04, 2018

Featuring Tamara Sher, Ph.D., Licensed Clinical Psychologist and former Clinical Professor at The Family Institute, this webinar addresses the chronic strains and stressors of both living with a romantic partner who has a serious illness and being a person with a serious illness who is married.

We call this webinar “Sick and Tired” to connote the stressors associated with each role: that of the sick person who is sick of being sick and that of the partner who is tired from taking care of it all. Our goals for our participants are that they learn more compassion for each other, that they have permission to feel whatever it is they feel in the face of illness’s intrusion into their relationship and to gain more tools for having conversations about it all.
