WILTON, Conn. -- The Wilton Family Y is hosting a series of workshops for women who left their job to be stay-at-home moms but miss their professional career.

The six-week series is entitled “Career Issues for Stay-at-home Moms…More Than Meets the Eye: A Fast Track to Reinvention” and will be facilitated by Hilary S. Berger, the director and founder of Work Like A Mother.

Classes will meet for six consecutive Wednesdays, from 10 a.m. to noon beginning Jan. 29 and concluding on March 5.

Each week, topics will pertain to the career and life issues that affect women who seek to be devoted caregivers, but also may wish to engage in activities that provide them with professional fulfillment and a sense of purpose outside the needs of the family.

Class participants are encouraged to examine their skills and interests and combine those with volunteer work and other activities to gain a new sense of their professional relevance.

Berger, a career counselor and a board certified licensed professional mental health counselor. She obtained her doctoral degree in education from Columbia University's Teachers College.

She has counseled women in university settings and in private practice for more than twenty years.

The fee for the workshops is $225 for Y members and $325 for non-members. Seating is limited so reservations with payment in advance are required.
