Join Dr Dom Thompson for tips and advice on looking after your mental health and wellbeing this year.
In this one hour session, Scholars will hear about why life may be feeling more stressful in 2021, what to watch out for, and ways for coping well. Dr Dom will talk about dealing with uncertainty, isolation and the unrealistic expectations we can sometimes have of ourselves.
The session will include a Q&A and a couple of quizzes to keep things interesting! There will also be a chance to talk with fellow Scholars during an informal breakout session after Dr Dom’s workshop.
CSC workshops focus on professional and practical skills and are designed to be interactive, with small groups of Scholars and Fellows taking part in each event.
Further details of the workshop agenda will be provided to participants on the day.
