Life as a graduate student can be challenging, stressful, and isolating.  There are many ways graduate students can thrive and flourish during their academic training, even while facing long hours of research, time spent away from family and friends, and ample opportunities for rejection.  This interactive program is designed to provide graduate students with a wide variety of skills and activities they can implement in easy and time-saving ways into their daily lives.  Audience members will have an opportunity to learn, practice, and thoughtfully consider ways to increase their resilience and coping abilities during this one hour presentation.  Created by representatives from the McDonald Center for Student Well-Being and Care Consultants, this workshop is intentionally designed for the busy graduate student.

Well-being is central to the mission of Notre Dame to develop and form the whole person.  Come to this session to learn and practice skills that can promote your physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual well-being
