The headlines are screaming what we already know and feel: Too much work, too much pressure, and too little space to think, to play, and to love, is a recipe for burnout.
Consider this study from the World Health Organization and International Labor Organization published in May in Environment International. It is the first global analysis of loss of life and health related to working long hours:
“The study concludes that working 55 or more hours per week is associated with an estimated 35% higher risk of a stroke and a 17% higher risk of dying from ischemic heart disease, compared to working 35-40 hours a week.”
J&L Psychology Group is currently accepting applications for a full-time, one-year postdoctoral fellowship with a flexible, immediate start date (estimated that position will begin in summer/fall of 2022). The position requires 20-25 clinical hours (1:1 patient care, group) in addition to attending a weekly clinical meeting, projects meeting, and individual supervision. Administration time and project development hours also are included in the 40-hour workweek.
We are looking for candidates interested in working with children, adults, families, and/or couples in a close-knit, collaborative therapeutic group practice. Our practice is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and all services are primarily being provided virtually due to COVID-19 crisis.
We are looking to add a full-time or part-time Psychologist who works with adults and couples to our close-knit, collaborative therapeutic team. This is a salaried position with competitive pay and an end-of-year bonus opportunity. Therapists who work at least 30 hours a week are also eligible for our benefits package.
At J&L Psychology, we are inspired by the ancient Japanese art of Kintsugi, or “golden joinery.” Kintsugi celebrates imperfections in repairing broken pottery with a bonding substance lined with gold. The result is a stronger, more durable vessel forever changed by its shimmering imperfections. Similarly, we believe emotional scars are to be illuminated rather than hidden. Human fragility and strength forge resilience, and people are never beyond repair.
We are looking to add a Child & Family Psychologist to our dynamic therapy team. This is a salaried position with competitive pay and an end-of-year bonus opportunity. Therapists who work at least 30 hours a week are also eligible for our benefits package.
J&L Psychology Group specializes in the treatment of individuals across the lifespan (children, teens, adults) who present with a diverse set of issues, including complex trauma, anxiety, depression, adjustment/ transition issues, etc. We provide individual, couples, and family-based therapies. We are passionate about developing authentic relationships with our patients and tailoring treatment plans to fit each person.
