Resilience & Well-being in Research

Equal Opportunities Service

Start date: 5 June 2024

End date: 6 June 2024

Academia is an ultramarathon that we try to run as a sprint. This approach tends to leave people with little time or energy for life outside of work and very few resources to cope when we face challenges. A healthier approach to research is possible and is essential to build a sustainable career in academia or anywhere else in this fast-pace, competitive world we live in.

This workshop provides with tools to increase resilience to stress, anxiety and burnout, and to enhance overall well-being by exploring:

  • The self-critical inner voices that sabotage motivation and enjoyment for the work; How the mindset can help or hinder day-to-day life and future career prospects;
  • How certain maladaptive coping strategies (e.g. procrastina - tion and avoidance) maintain these self-sabotaging thought and behaviour cycles.
  • How to reshape thinking and behaviour patterns to work in pursuit of goals.

Teaching mehod: 4 online LIVE sessions & 3 video learning modules in two half-day sessions - Via Zoom

The workshop is dedicated to PhD students and post-docs.

The initiative will be held on 5 and 6 June 2024 from 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.
