Fields of study

Module assignments


Academic tasks and administration, tutoring and teaching, partner projects… and family first of all! You can feel the stress building up even while reading this. Being asked to do everything at once and straight away is an integral part of daily life in academia. This workshop uses cognitive stress models to show how stress is triggered and the ways in which it can be reduced and avoided. We focus on the mental competence of identifying and changing those thoughts and beliefs which trigger and increase stress (i.e. perfectionism). We also reflect upon the regenerative competence of keeping tension low and energy high. And we discuss and test some relaxation techniques.

Contents in brief
• Stressors in academia

• 3 Pillars of stress competence
o Instrumental stress competence
o Mental stress competence
o Regenerative stress competence

Please note:
Due to a large number of very short-term cancellations and unannounced absences in the recent past we would like to point out again that registrations for workshops of the Graduate Academy are binding. Cancellations are only acceptable under imperative circumstances and need to be announced as early as possible. If this is not the case, workshop places that have become available cannot be given to individuals on the waiting list or the workshop cannot be cancelled in due course in the case of low demand. In this case high cancellation fees occur. Under thes circumstances the offer of the Graduate Academy cannot be held up in the medium term.
