Event description

Description

Tuesday 28 May 2019 | Central London | 1300-1700

Half-day interactive workshop for supervisors

Lunch and refreshments included

A recent study by the University of California suggested that 47% of PhD students were living with depression; this rose to 64% in the Arts & Humanities. In Higher Education we have a collective responsibility to promote the wellbeing of both our students and each other.

This workshop is designed to offer practical advice, tools, and ideas for creating a supportive environment for everyone involved in the doctoral supervision process.

By the end of the session attendees will have:

  • A greater understanding of the challenges posed by mental health issues
  • An awareness of the different mental health conditions
  • Coaching techniques for improving wellbeing
  • Strategies for protecting themselves and colleagues
  • Tools for reflection and further development

Lunch is available at 13.00, then we'll start the workshop at 13.30.

The outline of the workshop can be found here.

Terms and conditions

By registering you are requesting a place on this training programme or selected sessions that form part of the programme. A member of the CHASE team or the workshop leader will contact you in due course to confirm that a place has been allocated to you. If you no longer require a place, please email enquiries@chase.ac.uk as soon as possible so your name can be removed from the registration list.

If you are allocated a place but can no longer attend, please email enquiries@chase.ac.uk so that your place can be reallocated. CHASE training is free to attend and events are often oversubscribed with a waiting list. Failure to notify us of non-attendance in good time (ideally 5 days prior to the workshop/programme) means your place cannot be reallocated and may result in your access to future CHASE training being restricted.
