HRA Workshop: Self-Management, Stress Coping and Self-Motivation for PhD-Researchers
When: Wed, 28.04.2021 9:00 AM until Thu, 29.04.2021 4:00 PM
A doctorate is a marathon. Many setbacks must be overcome, enthusiasm and disillusionment are close together. In addition, it is often a balancing act to reconcile scientific work with other areas of work and life – such as teaching, project work or a family. In order to meet the different demands and to stick to the doctorate, both self-management and self-care are essential.
The workshop is about developing a feasible action plan for the remaining doctoral process. Against the background of your individual work and life situation, you will critically scrutinize your goals, motivators and working methods. You will learn techniques to work more effectively and to keep an eye on the big picture despite the daily business. In addition, you will develop beneficial thought and behaviour patterns in order to stay healthy in stressful phases and to stick to the doctorate even in difficult times.
