Managing stress - training

Becoming aware and taking care of stress, fear of failure and perfectionism

This group is intended for students that experience high levels of stress during studying.

Content

This training will help you deal with stress, fear of failure, perfectionism, worry and low self-esteem. You will work on becoming more aware of what your triggers of stress are and you will learn and experience how slowing down (mindfulness) actually helps you to recover from stress.

You will also work on creating a more healthy motivation and learn to study in a more efficient way. This can help you enjoy the study process more.

The next step will be learning to take better care of yourself by taming your inner critic and cultivating a compassionate mind. We will use techniques from Compassionate Mind Training to help you balance your mind, body and actions.
