PhD sessions – Developing self-compassion to overcome Imposter Syndrome – 07 December 2023

PhD sessions – Developing self-compassion to overcome Imposter Syndrome 
Thursday, 7 Dec 2023 12:30-13:30h, in person, at the Chaplaincy

In Academia it is easy to feel that we are not doing enough, or not achieving enough. We might even feel we are not worthy of studying or working in our positions. This is called Imposter Syndrome and many of us experience it in our lives. In this session we will explore practices of self-compassion. Being able to treat ourselves as we would a good friend, can help us thrive and work well with others.
