Navigating school, the career exploration process, research environments, and the stress of national/international news can seem overwhelming and lead us to doubt ourselves just when we need confidence the most. Through workshops in this series, we will work to identify attitudes and behaviors that can help us be more resilient as we navigate difficult situations in school, work and life. Each workshop will highlight emotional intelligence competencies needed for success in research and healthcare careers and will provide strategies for developing these competencies as part of your educational journey. While you may participate in any of the webinars, it is best to participate in the entire series as the material relates and concepts will be developed throughout the series. Data show that trainees who attended most of the sessions of the earlier “Becoming a Resilient Scientist Series” reported that they had become more resilient, were better able to handle stress and conflict in their lives, and would recommend the series highly to their colleagues.

The workshops in the series are:

Session 1 (September 23) – An Introduction to Resilience and Wellness 

Session 2 (October 7) – Exploring our Self-Talk: Cognitive Distortions and Imposter Fears

Session 3 (October 21) – Self-Advocacy and Assertiveness for Scientists

Session 4 (November 4) – Developing Feedback Resilience

Session 5 (November 18) – Managing Up to Maximize Mentoring Relationships
