Online: Stress Management

Target group

The workshop targets doctoral candidates who want to learn, practice skills to reduce the negative effects of stress, and get personalized feedback on their stress situation.



Some stress can be a positive motivating factor, but too much will hold us back from fulfilling our potential. Not only academia, but life is plagued with stress, and not addressing it can have serious health implications. In this workshop, we will discuss balancing work and life, and learn how to maximize recovery from stress. We will do exercises to prevent stress, develop strategies to cope with unavoidable stress, and utilize stress in a positive way. We will help to identify your level of stress and then practice stress reduction techniques in order to relieve pent up pressure when dealing with work, life, and whatever faces us in the future. Finally, we will build our resistance to stressful situations by developing a personalized sense of boundaries. In this online workshop, you will also have a private meeting with the trainer to discuss your situation and have a chance to get personalized feedback on your situation.



This course will teach stress identification and reduce. You will learn how to use your breathing and body to handle stress, practice how to become stress resistant, and learn how to manage stress through lifestyle planning



Relaxation exercises, breathing techniques, theory in structuring and prioritizing work/life balance, written goal attribution, personalized feedback
