Quick Bytes: Self-Compassion in Academia

Struggle is part of the grad school experience. Difficult moments are part of the human experience. How we handle those difficult moments can be the difference between a downward spiral of isolation, and a confident step toward meaningful work. From this workshop, participants will learn what self-compassion is, current research addressing the ways self-compassion protects ambition, and gain tools for how to practice self-compassion.

Stanford is organizing a two-day conversation (February 3 and 4) on mental health and well-being for our entire campus community — students, postdocs, staff, and faculty.
