Workshop 1: Growing Through Adversity: Recognizing the Benefits of Uncomfortable Circumstances
7 p.m. (EST)
"You never grow when you're comfortable" is a favorite mantra that Dr. Maureen Dougherty, workshop presenter, has shared with former students, friends, and even her own children. COVID -19 forced many of us into the uncomfortable, requiring us to change, stretch and extend beyond what we may have thought possible. Since adversity in life is a given, can you identify your best and most helpful coping methods when anything or anyone forces you into the unfamiliar or uncomfortable? As you think about the next step in your life and career following graduate school, will you recognize the benefits of uncomfortable circumstances and accept the challenge to step outside of the comfort zone to reach your goals? Come to this workshop and learn more about how you can learn from the uncomfortable and choose your path forward.
