Many young academics are confronted with stress. Might be due to deadlines, failure of experiments, fear of failure and too high levels of perfectionism. However, although stress is quite a common phenomenon for PhD’s and post-docs, many do not even recognise the symptoms. As a result things can go from bad to worse. Hence, this afternoon workshop has been set up to:
Give insight in
- What is stress
- How it can be identified (what are the symptoms)
- How to deal with stress and/or how to avoid it
- What one can do when stress has got the most of him/her
Part of the workshop will tackle these issues from a theoretical perspective.
Additionally there will be some exercises, to be carried out in smaller groups (with plenary discussion afterwards). Such as the assignment to formulate stress in their own environment, how it can be tackled, given personal competences and skills. Based on one’s own situation, including ones strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, a personal stress (prevention) action plan can be developed.
