IRTG Workshop: Mental Health (Part I)

Dr. Andrea Szameitat Online09:00 - 12:30

First session (07.12.; 09:00 - 12:30)

In the first session, this workshop focuses on what mental health is, what widespread mental health issues look like, how it affects us in our daily life, what personal dispositions are, and how all of that spells out in a PhD life. It offers time for reflection and personal insights into our very individual situations and personalities.

Second session (08.12.; 09:00 - 12:30)
The second session focuses on the concept of resilience: what exactly is it, how does it serve us and how can we develop a higher level of resilience? Again, a phase of reflection about the individual situation and a take-home message is given. More alternative strategies for building resilience are offered.
We end with every participant picking one thing they will try until Tuesday. And some more ”homework” to reflect upon on the Tuesday time slot.

Third session (12.12.; 19:00 - 21:00)

In this meeting you reflect together about your progress/current situation in an informal setting.
