Geophysicist & Distinguished Chair of Professional Development Education at Colorado School of Mines

When asked, academic faculty often will say that they have the dream job that combines research and teaching, while being very free. Yet, academics are not a particularly happy and care-free group. The pressures of academic life are real. 


Yet, where have we learned how to live with these pressures, and how to navigate the emotional waters of high-paced academic life? 


In this workshop we will examine some of the communal beliefs that we hold, beliefs that tend to elevate our stress levels and feelings of not being “enough.” 


We will also address the concept of the internal dialogue, and cover techniques to help manage emotions. In this interactive workshop there is scope for conversation and for addressing topics that are of particular interests for participants.

All spots have been filled for this event and registration is closed.
