Center for Work and Family Life

Help where and when you need it

The Center for Work and Family Life (CWFL) has been serving the Trojan community for 40 years, and we continue to support faculty, staff, post-docs, dependents, and retirees.

While you can find a full list of the health and well-being resources that exist across the USC community for faculty and staff in the Health and Well-being Resource Directory, here are just a few of the free and confidential work/life resources that CWFL offers benefits-eligible employees:

  • Individual, solution-focused counseling for personal and workplace issues
  • Work/life and wellness talks tailored for your department, unit, or workgroup
  • Workplace consultations for leaders and supervisors to support and manage staff
  • Executive coaching by certified staff for Director-level and above employees
  • ParentConnect Slack group a Slack workspace that supports working parents
  • Events such as the Healthy Habits Webinar Series, providing strategies to help navigate the transition and recovery from pandemic life; Thriving Thursdays Zoom sessions, offering mental health wellness learning bursts while nourishing your body with lunch the first Thursday of each month; and ParentConnect drop-in groups for working parents or caregivers

Missed any of the Healthy at Home Habits webinars? Not to worry. You can view the recorded events here.
