Holm, Jessica M.; Prosek, Elizabeth A.; Godwin Weisberger, Andrea C.
Counselor Education and Supervision, v54 n1 p2-16 Mar 2015
Women often face challenges when balancing academic and familial responsibilities (Gilbert, 2008); Trepal & Stinchfield, 2012). This phenomenological study explored women's (N = 10) experiences of becoming mothers during a doctoral program in counseling. The results highlight the importance of mentorship and other protective factors associated with a successful transition from student to mother.
