RD-QMA-002 - Stress, Resilience and Strengths

All researchers (including staff and PhD students)

This workshop will be hosted online.
You will receive joining instructions via email 2 weeks in advance of the session and again 2 days in advance.

Layered difficulties deepen stress and can rob us of our sense of control. The ethos of this programme is to empower you to take small practical actions to focus on the things you can control, whilst managing unhelpful responses to the things you cannot. A brief overview of the origins and implications of stress will equip you with an understanding of general responses, from which you'll identify how stress affects you personally. Having insight into your current landscape, you'll then work with three specific stress-management / resilience tools, in partnership with other researchers. You'll decide what steps you will take to reduce your stress, boost your resilience and make better use of your strengths.

Engaging with this workshop will enable you to:
• Clarify what you can control and influence, and take proactive steps to focus where
your agency is strongest
• Explore your personal resilience and bust unhelpful myths in favour of strategies that
work well for you
• Define and deploy your personal strengths as super-powers to ease stress responses
