Have you recently
experienced the loss of a loved one?
Are you having
difficulty focusing because of a change to your family structure (e.g.,
separation from a partner, caregiving for a new child or an adult family member,
financial concerns, physical or mental health concerns)?
If so, you are NOT alone!
We all know that academia can be stressful and demanding
regardless of rank. And in the midst, life happens! We have to manage transitions,
unexpected changes, and loss. Balancing these life events while also trying to teach
your courses, complete a dissertation, publish your next manuscript, or meet
the deadline for a major grant application can be difficult.
Through this interactive workshop, we will:
Highlight the challenges related to dealing with
life transitions and loss as graduate students and faculty from
Discuss the common mistakes that graduate
students, faculty, and administrators make when faced with life transitions
Identify coping strategies that will enable you
to prioritize your wellness (and dare I say, flourish!) even in the midst of
difficult life events
