Parental Leave:

Strategies for Navigating the Transition

Request Information

Introduction

Taking parental leave can be a challenging and exciting time for working parents. It’s a time of transition and adjustment, both at home and at work.

In this training, we will discuss the challenges and opportunities of parental leave and provide strategies for navigating this period of transition.

The goal is to help working parents understand the issues they may face during parental leave and provide tools and resources to support them through this process.

Details‚Äč
  • To understand the challenges and opportunities of parental leave
  • To explore strategies for navigating the transition to parental leave
  • To provide working parents with tools and resources to support them during parental leave
  • Lecture and discussion
  • Group exercises and role-plays
  • Case studies and real-life examples

included in 90-min, Half Day & Full Day sessions

  • Group exercise: Participants will work in small groups to identify the challenges and opportunities of parental leave and brainstorm strategies for navigating this transition.
  • Role-play: Participants will role-play a scenario in which a working parent is preparing to take parental leave and will practice using the strategies learned in the session to navigate this transition effectively.

(included in Half-Day and Full Day sessions)

  • The Work-Family Interface Model: This model explains how work and family intersect and how this can lead to conflict or enrichment. It can be leveraged within work settings by understanding the different ways in which work and family intersect during parental leave and implementing policies and practices that support a healthy work-family balance.
  • The Transition to Parenthood Model: This model suggests that becoming a parent is a process of transition that involves both challenges and opportunities. It can be leveraged within work settings by recognizing the unique challenges and opportunities of parental leave and providing support and resources to help working parents navigate this transition.
  • The Family Supportive Supervisor Behaviors Model: This model suggests that supervisors can support employees with families by demonstrating behaviors such as concern for their well-being, flexibility, and communication. It can be leveraged within work settings by training supervisors to demonstrate these behaviors and support working parents during their parental leave.

At the end of this session, participants will have a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities of parental leave and will be equipped with strategies and resources to support them through this period of transition.

Participants will be able to identify and address any issues they may face during parental leave and will be prepared to implement strategies to navigate this process successfully. Participants will be able to return to work feeling confident and supported ready to balance their work and family commitments.
