The pandemic is undoubtedly putting a strain on everybody’s mental health. Which is why it is more important than ever to proactively talk about the topic of mental health and create awareness that it is not something shameful but rather the essential basis for everyone's wellbeing and productivity. Therfore we are currently implementing the topic in a lot of our programmes such as "Academic Leadership for Women" or "International Arrival at UHH" in the year 2021.
Furthermore we offered two topical webinars in which participants had the chance to develop cognitive strategies, work and lifestyle habits that will improve their psychological wellbeing and eventually their productivity during the pandemic. The courses were conducted in March 2021 by Desiree Dickerson, PhD.
On October 20, 2021 there will also be an event on "Motivation & Procrastination". Procrastination is a way of easing our own discomfort regarding a task. The difficulty with procrastinating is that it makes you feel better for a moment, but it does nothing to fix the reason the task feels uncomfortable to begin with. If you would like to learn more about "Motivation & Procrastination" feel free to register for the event!
- October 20, 2021 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
- Online with Desiree Dickerson (PhD)
- In English
