CPD Workshop: Stress & Anxiety among Students
25 April 2023
The study period is for most students – at least to some extent – a stressful period. Stress and anxiety can be normal and even functional. But as a staff member, it can be of utmost importance to know about the signs of dysfunctional or unhealthy stress and anxiety. In this workshop, you’ll get tools to deal with this, even more, to help prevent severe anxiety problems. Academic staff close to the students can have a significant impact on the well-being of students.
At the end of this session, you will be able to:
◊ Get insight into the concepts of stress and anxiety, with their underlying processes and causes
◊ Provide a listening ear and have a talk with the student about his struggle with stress or anxiety
◊ Guide the student towards appropriate actions that prevent stress- and anxiety problems from worsening
Whether you are active as a tutor, course coordinator, mentor, study advisor or you fulfill multiple roles, this workshop can offer everyone new insights into stress and anxiety among students.
You can register using the sign-up sheets provided below.
About the trainers
In these challenging times, student mental health has never been more important. Students might not always have the required skills yet to overcome the challenges they are faced with. Therefore the UM Psychologists and the UM Wellbeing Movement strive to make students more resilient and provide them with sufficient means to acquire skills that promote wellbeing during their studies and further in their professional career and life. At UM, there are many initiatives, programmes and plans that can contribute to student wellbeing and at the end of this workshop we will provide you with an introduction and overview of these ventures. Already interested? A broad range of (online) lectures, workshops and training sessions have been developed for students to develop themselves personally and professionally.
