Set your Anchor – Writing a doctoral thesis in challenging times

08.06.2020 | 09:30 - 11:00

Online-Workshop für Promovierende der Verbundeinrichtungen der Berlin University Alliance

Achtwöchiger Online-Kurs im Modul IV: Mental Health/Resilienz
Der Workshop findet auf Englisch statt. 

Working on a doctoral thesis alone in the imposed isolation is not always easy. How do I structure my day? How do I separate work from my private life? What do I do when the laboratory is closed? What about my data now?

Anchoring in stormy times is something that gets better and better with practice and experience.

For employees, assistant lectures, registered doctoral candidates at Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, the course is free of charge.


This online workshop supports doctoral students by strengthening their resilience and thus their own inner stability. You will work on a personal productive mindset and develop helpful perspectives and strategies. By strengthening your resources and potentials you will learn how to master challenges more calmly and thereby achieve your own goals.

The aim of this module is prevention of mental health. This offer is aimed at all doctoral students (any academic age) from the partners universities of the Berlin University Alliance.
