What’s Emotional Labor?

It’s the unpaid, invisible work we do to keep those around us comfortable and happy. Emotional labor is the unseen, unnoticed, unwaged, unwritten, unanticipated work – at home and in the paid workforce. Many examples of Emotional Labor will be found as you go through this survey.

I’d LOVE for you to participate.

The entire survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete and is completely anonymous.  As a token of my appreciation, you’ll receive a link to a FREE PDF copy of my (1st!) book, Psychic Debris, Crowded Closets: The Relationship Between the Stuff in Your Head and What’s Under Your Bed, (3rd Ed).

To begin the survey, please click here: Survey.

And please forward widely if you have it in you…

Emotional Labor
Emotional Labor: Why A Woman’s Work is Never Done and What To Do About It
Emotional labor is the unseen, unnoticed, unwaged, unwritten work women do in the home and in the paid workforce. Largely invisible, the mental load of emotional labor weighs heavily on the shoulders of women yet the value is huge. It produces happiness, order, organization, family coherence and harmony and a well-functioning home. It produces socialized kids and promotes comfort, compassion and sympathy. The accepted narrative is that emotional labor is “women’s work” and as the saying goes, “a woman’s work is never done.” Emotional Labor: Why A Woman’s Work is Never Done and What To Do About It disrupts the narrative. It examines women’s relationship to emotional labor through the lens of history up to and including the COVID-19 era. Included tools and exercises promote dynamic dialogues, prepare for emotional labor over a lifetime, and foster a more equitable sharing of emotional labor. Forthcoming Fall 2021. More information here
