Resilience for Mental and Emotional Agility

by Dr Granville D'Souza

About the seminar:

The doctoral degree represents a massive milestone in the academic journey and achievement of any student. But it also comes with its unique challenges as they are dealt with various obstacles that they might never have had to encounter before. The student will potentially be faced with a lot of rejection, disagreement and sometimes face hopelessness alone as they embark on contributing a piece of research that only they can testify to being experts in. And this in itself represents a lonely journey. The right attitude and the need to practice delayed gratification, optimism and resilience are key skills that help Ph.D students put such challenges behind them and keep climbing. The student will not only need support from others but learn to access these resources from themselves. This program will teach participants how to access the resources within themselves and practice other critical practices that is so relevant when pursuing a doctoral degree.
