The Psychological Therapies Training and Research Clinic is running a four-part workshop to support post graduate students with the mental and emotional demands of postgraduate study. If you are bothered by worry, uncertainty, or self-critical thoughts, or are managing setbacks in your studies, you are not alone. These workshops have been designed for you to help develop and practice skills to manage the emotional challenges common in postgraduate life. We would love to see you join us at a workshop!

The sessions involve four: 90 minute sessions and introduce evidence-based strategies, which are based on cognitive behavioural therapy techniques, to support you in managing your stressors more effectively. The workshops are a great space to speak to other post-graduate students, learn skills and techniques that may relieve some of your anxieties and introduce new ways of approaching your problems. They are ran by a qualified cognitive behavioural therapist and a clinical psychologist in training.

Please note as part of the evaluation of these workshops you will be required to fill in an anonymised questionnaire about how you are feeling prior to the first workshop and following the last workshop, which usually takes about five minutes. We will also ask you fill this in again 4 weeks after the workshops to help us understand how our workshops have helped you.

Before signing up we encourage you watch this short clip: https://youtu.be/MtqaCKZKId8 which provides a comprehensive summary of the workshop overview, to help you decide if these workshops are for you.

If you cannot attend these workshops as part of the post-graduate mental health campaign, please search: mind management skills workshops for postgraduate students on the workshop booking system and sign up to a future one.
