A greater emphasis is placed on postgraduate researchers to self-manage, be self-directed learners and in the acquisition of academic skills for the future. PhD Researchers have often to balance issues with planning, face academic difficulties and adversities, and personal problems along the way. All of these increase stress and impact on wellbeing of researchers.
This short programme will enable participants to develop a positive mental attitude to become ‘stress smart’ by understanding the differences between pressure and stress. The session will help participants develop tools and strategies utilising the ‘Take 5 steps to wellbeing’, in order to maximise success.
PhD Researcher Feedback (2019)
Great to hear other researchers feeling exactly the same as you regarding things we stress about either PhD related or personally. The session was perfect in understanding these feelings and how best we go about controlling these stressful feelings.
