Stress management – supervision group for PhD Candidates at NTNU Gjøvik

How do you manage stress while working on your PhD?

NTNU in Gjøvik’s local Occupational Health Services arranges group supervision for English speaking PhD Candidates at NTNU in Gjøvik with Linde Borgen/ psychotherapist and stress management coach, Stamina Occupational Health Service.

Being a Research Fellow and working on your PhD can in itself be an arduous and lonely journey. Adjusting to a new culture can make it even harder. Over time stress-related symptoms tend to emerge. In this supervision group we will inquire into our own situation and explore how to manage stress as it shows up mentally, emotionally and in the body.

The group will meet at campus, daytime, 6 x 2 hours at the following dates and times:

  • April 25 and 30 (09.30 – 11.30 AM)
  • May 14 and 28 (09.30 – 11.30 AM)
  • June 11 and 25 (09.30 – 11.30 AM)

Participants: Min 6/ Max 9

There is no participation fee, but binding registration is required.

Feel free to give feedback if you think the sessions are too long or too many – this is the first time, so we may “build the road as we walk”.
