Doing a PhD can be quite a challenge. Besides times that things go well and you feel like you have the best job in the world, one can also be confronted with an array of challenges along the route to become an independent and critical scientist.
These challenges may significantly increase the moment a crisis occurs (e.g. family issues, illness, financial dilemmas or the current pandemic) as it amplifies the factors that lie in front of the PhD candidate or it reveals unexposed challenges. Moreover, generally crises generate a high degree of uncertainty. These factors combined can cause an initial reaction of freeze or flee, while before the candidate was in full flow of doing the PhD. So, when you are confronted with a crisis and you do not know how to tackle it, the question is how to tackle the situation. This certainly can be the case in the current times of the Covid-19 pandemic that has affected daily life, work and relaxation and that may have brought you in a downwards movement.
In this short, interactive and peer-driven training, we will jointly discuss experiences, identify new or amplified challenges as well as means and methods to tackle these to finally translate this in a (SMART) plan of action to get you (back) on track. Central elements that will be addressed:
