Webinar on Dealing with Holiday Family Drama

Credit: @AcademicsSay

Does the phrase “home for the holidays” fill you with feelings of anticipation and excitement, or dread for inevitable family drama? The holidays can be a time of joy, but also a time of stress, especially if you are a first-generation graduate student of color whose family culture might not be comfortable with your ambitions and intellectual pursuits. Before you leave for the holidays, be sure to check out this webinar by the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD):

Many graduate students coping with difficult family dynamics find themselves frustrated because they feel devalued and disrespected. In this webinar, journalist and historian Dr. Stacey Patton uses her unique brand of candor and humor to share some lessons she has learned about being a first-generation graduate student, and she offers a practical guide that students can use to manage their feelings and expectations to achieve successful family togetherness with minimal stress.
