Our Workshops

DSDP - Building Up Emotional Strength as a Researcher

Please note this workshop is only open to Research Students.

This workshop uses proven techniques to help you build up your strength and resilience by changing the way you think about your difficulties. Some degrees of resilience is an essential ingredient in coping with life.

 It is not just about armouring yourself to difficulties: it is about developing accurate and flexible thinking, capacities for creative problem-solving and the ability to see other people's point of view and challenge your own.

 The focus of the workshop will be to try and develop these capacities by increasing your awareness of the relationship between your thoughts and feelings and through helping you to locate alternative attitudes and beliefs which can help extricate you from what can otherwise seem like difficult emotions.
