Monday Morning Speaker: Judith Glasser on

Emotional Intelligence and Social Networking:

Out of work but plugged in

In 2011 social networks are more important than ever. Social networks such as Facebook and Linkedin are prevalent today – it has been said that if Facebook were a country it would be the third largest in the world.  Current wisdom is that it is wise to maintain your social network even when you don’t need anything.  However when you are out of work, you are likely to feel somewhat stressed in these interactions. Social intelligence is key to networking; this means understanding yourself and those in your network, what they value and care about.  One idea that can help you is to focus more on what you can do for other people rather than on what they can do for you. Specific networking strategies will be discussed in this workshop.

Biography – Judith M. Glasser, Ph.D.

A native Washingtonian, I attended Oberlin College in Ohio where I obtained a BA in Psychology in 1972. I returned to Washington for graduate school and received a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 1979 from the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C.  For many years, I combined private practice in Northern Virginia with raising my two children who are now adults. From 2009-2010, I served as director of child and family services for the Chesapeake ADHD Center of Maryland. I returned to solo private practice in Silver Spring, MD, where I offer personalized and private consultations.  I have extensive experience with diagnosis and treatment of many different kinds of problems including depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) among others. I am also experienced working with people who have learning disabilities in addition to anxiety and depression. The difficulties experienced by many gifted children with learning disabilities have been of special interest to me throughout my career.  The transition to adulthood is an area of special interest of mine as well, and I incorporate career counseling as part of my evaluations and treatment.


Plan to join us after the meeting for networking. Many of us carry our conversations to lunch at the nearby Brookings Institution.

Attire is business casual, recruiters are often present, so we ask all Monday Speaker attendees to contribute to the professional standards and objectives of this important networking meeting.

Doors open at 9:30 for networking and the program starts promptly at 10:00.
