Sustainable Balance in Work & Family Life

Dr David Skalicky was recently featured in this article by the Royal Australasian College of Physicians discussing managing being a parent with a young family and physician work.

“Thinking hard about how you are going to find a balance that is sustainable is really important”, says Dr Skalicky.

Dr Skalicky has found reading the works of psychologists, psychiatrists, paediatricians and neuroscientists such as Dr John Gottman, Dr Howard Chilton, and Dr Daniel Siegel, on topics around relationships, philosophy, neurobiology and neurodevelopment to be very useful.

Dr Skalicky says that “family life kind of nourishes your sense of identity which helps you know yourself better, which helps you treat patients better as well”.
