Women's Problems: Immobility and Professional Growth.
Schwartz, Lita Linzer
This paper focuses on the dilemma of job immobility for the married professional woman who, by subordinating mobility to her marriage, faces a problem of professional growth within the constraints of a fixed location. Solutions to this problem are suggested, using an immobile married female psychologist as an example. An adaptation of the "Twenty Uses" method, i.e., 20 suggestions for professional growth, are enumerated and discussed. The first 10 suggestions are general ideas, while the last 10 ideas offer more specific activities for either clinical work or academia. It is noted that the "Twenty Uses" are useful for any professional woman who has access to the postal service, professional literature, and cooperative colleagues. The method suggested is also helpful for other professionals, such as the physically disabled, who may be immobile. (NRB)
