As young researcher you enter into a time of great change. You have to meet new professional demands (regarding your field, employment, economic, future concerns); play numerous roles (supervisor’s assistant, autonomous researcher, self-promoter, academic author); and know your personal qualities (disposition, work speed, goals). Oh, wait, there’s also a thesis to write and a private life to take care of!

Don’t let this drive you nuts! There is a tool for self-management that allows you to master your life in academia and makes you bounce back when there are setbacks and crises: resilience. This two-day programme activates and develops your resilience skills in interactive units of analysis, self-reflection, communication and pragmatic counsel. My goal is to familiarise you with ready-to-use methods which strengthen your long-term productivity and your mental health and which help you maintain a balance between work and life.

Target group: Young researchers either in the early stages of their PhD thesis or postdocs planning the next stages of their career.
