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.
