Understanding and Overcoming the Imposter Experience (aka- You Belong in Grad School)
Tuesday, August 11 at 10:00 am & Tuesday, September 1 at 4:00 pm
Did you know that imposter feelings are normal and that most high-achieving graduate students experience these feelings at some point? Join us to better understand the Imposter Syndrome; learn where it comes from and how it can manifest. More importantly, understand how it can be a barrier to graduate student success and what you can do to overcome this. Dr. Wong will use theory, data, clinical practice, and his own experiences as a graduate student to paint a picture of the Imposter Syndrome with accuracy, helpfulness, and humor.
Presenter: Wai Wong, Assistant Director for Community Based Services, Cornell Health
