[FULL] CBT Group Workshop 4: Dealing With Critical You
Online - via Zoom
This workshop is delivered by the Newcastle University Psychological Therapies Training & Research Clinic. People doing post-graduate research degrees can often be very hard on themselves, striving for high standards and to achieve the best that they can. This can come with very self-critical thoughts, or with feelings of being an ‘imposter’ who someone will ‘find out about’ eventually. This workshop focuses on self-critical thoughts, how they impact on your stress-level, motivation to work and how they influence how you feel about yourself. It explores ways of managing these thoughts differently to maintain your wellbeing and confidence.
This is a 2 hour workshop that aims to modify ‘how we think’ rather than ‘what we think’. It includes exercises based on evidence-based principles to help you explore self-critical thinking and test out ways of responding differently to self-critical thoughts. In the workshop you will:
- Hear from other students and their experience of self-critical thoughts, perfectionism and imposter syndrome
- Come to understand the role and importance of our thoughts in how we feel about yourselves and how we feel more generally
- Understand how avoiding things, putting things off, or overworking can relate to self-critical thinking
- Learn and practice different ways of responding to self-critical thoughts
Unfortunately, this event is now at capacity.
