Carrie wrote her first blog post for IBPF, Finding Work That Works When You Have Bipolar Disorder, in 2014. To her surprise, it became one of the most viewed posts on the IBPF blog. Carrie has also received many emails telling her how helpful the post was. In this webinar, she will review and expand on the information in that post, and provide lots of additional resources. As someone with bipolar disorder and other disabilities, Carrie has encountered her share of bumps on her own career path. She has struggled to fit in with the demands and environments of traditional jobs. She has experienced prejudice and discrimination, as well as an inability to get needed accommodations. And she has experienced being out of work on Disability. But ironically, as a career counselor, Carrie has helped hundreds of people with disabilities find and keep meaningful work. Her experiences and difficulties have led her to an understanding of the importance of purpose, meaning, and contribution.
