Finishing a doctoral thesis can be a milestone in your life story, but the way can also be quite laborious and exhausting.
How do PhD students and already finished PhD students deal with upcoming demands and obstacles? In this workshop we want to highlight various success factors and hurdles on the way to awarding a PhD and focus the opportunities for your personal development during this period.
After a welcome and introduction round, the participants discuss their personal requirement profiles in everyday university life. Enriched with theoretical impulses, coping strategies for the identified requirements are developed and reflected on together with the lecturers. The first workshop will be concluded with a discussion and feedback session.
Guided by orientation questions, the participants reflect on selected coping strategies until the follow-up. In the follow-up, the experiences are discussed in exchange with the other participants and together with the lecturers.
Dr. Philipp Laemmert and Dr. Helmut Strobl are experts in topics about health.
Philipp Laemmert was in charge of establishing the University Health Management of the University of Bayreuth and also advises companies and institutions on coporate health management. The expertise of Helmut Strobl lies particularly in psychosocial factors influencing human behavior.
Philipp Laemmert and Helmut Strobl are both post-docs at the Chair in Social and Health Sciences of Sport at the University of Bayreuth. That’s why it is a matter close to their heart sharing their experiences with PhD students in the workshop mentally strong during the PhD.
