Perhaps by virtue of being at the interface of the known and the unknown, research seems to be inherently stressful.

We need to be resilient in the face of the inevitable challenges that research brings. This short but intensive workshop will help you to cope with the vagaries of research by focusing on the 6 Cs of emotional resilience: Coping, Commitment, Challenge, Control, Community and (self-)Care.


  • Develop effective coping strategies
  • Know practical ways to improve how you interact with and perceive your research
  • Understand how to boost your self-care and sense of community
