Course Description

Within five seminar sessions, each lasting 4 hours including breaks, participants will learn different stress management strategies and participate in various relaxation techniques. 

  • Session 1 | Stress and its effects
  • Session 2 | Protect yourself from stress
  • Session 3 | It’s all in the mind
  • Session 4 | Managing stress successfully
  • Session 5 | My doctoral journey

In order to evaluate the success of the stress management seminar scientifically, the seminar series is accompanied by an intervention study. The study comprises the completion of various psychological questionnaires and the performance of a non-invasive stress level analysis (duration 1.5 hours maximum). Please note that study participation is mandatory and therefore linked to participation in the workshop. Participants will be contacted for appointments via e-mail.
