Description

Academic tasks and administration, tutoring and teaching, partner projects… and family first of all! You can feel the stress building up even while reading this. Being asked to do everything at once and straight away is an integral part of daily life in academia.

Objective

This workshop uses cognitive stress models to show how stress is triggered and the ways in which this can be reduced and avoided. We focus on the cognitive dimension of stress and how you can identify and change stress-inducing thoughts. In addition to that we also discuss regenerative and instrumental ways to counter pressure and stress, i.e. time-management.
