Happiness Ahoy - Strengthened and healthy through the doctoral thesis

May 11, 2022 | 09:30 AM - 05:30 PM

2-day Workshop - Graduate Studies Support Program

The Berlin University Alliance offers a comprehensive qualification program reflecting the different phases of a doctorate.

”Happiness Ahoy - Strengthened and healthy through the doctoral thesis” Wed, 11.05.2022 + Thur, 12.05.2022 (Online Follow Up: Wed, 15.06.2022)

Do you have the feeling of being constantly tense, sometimes unable to cope with problems and no longer experiencing any fun in your daily work? A doctorate means more than just writing the dissertation. The pressure to perform and the degree of personal responsibility are high.

This module has a small but fine repertoire of creative methods from Positive Psychology and Happiness Research, MBSR (Mindful Based Stress Reduction) and Resilience Coaching. It enables you to better deal with doctoral-related stress, strengthens your psychological resilience and supports you in dealing appropriately with the various challenges in the doctoral phase and in maintaining your mental health.

The event will take place in a quiet and green place in Berlin. So that we can focus on our own resources, strengths, and potentials during the event, we have also thought about overall health and so, in addition to the meeting house with a park-like garden, catering is also provided.
