Discussion Group/Brown Bag: Personal Development

Jan 04, 2019

Speaker(s): Annie Scheiner, LCMFT, OITE Wellness Advisor
This event is recommended for: Postbacs.

While applying and interviewing for graduate or professional school you will experience many ups and downs and expend lots of time and energy.  Writing personal statements, practicing your interviewing skills, and waiting to receive an answer are all stressful, but not all stress is bad for you. Positive stress can create motivation and focus and may even feel exciting.  Learning how to leverage short-term positive stress can help us to focus, motivate us to work harder, successfully navigate transitions, or complete a difficult task.   Let’s explore ways to utilize positive stress and to better cope with negative stress during your application and interview process. 

Building your resiliency and self-care skills now will help you to successfully navigate through these periods of growth, and will serve you well throughout your academic and career path.  

The resiliency group provides a welcoming and confidential space to explore positive and proactive methods to build resilience and self-care skills.  Please join us on Friday, January 4th at 9:00-10:00am for a drop-in discussion with OITE Wellness Advisor, Annie Scheiner.
