Aim and content
This is a generic course. This means that the course is reserved for PhD students at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences at UCPH.

Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student at the Graduate School, you will be placed on the waiting list until enrollment deadline. After the enrolment deadline, available seats will be allocated to the waiting list.

The course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School), and for PhD students at NorDoc member universities. All other participants must pay the course fee.

Are you experiencing high job expectations? Or uncertainties about the future? Or uncertainty about whether you are good enough as a researcher? Or is there something else that may be stressful? This is something many researchers experience. If you want to be less stressed and have more energy, then attend this workshop for PhD students with Bjarne Toftegård. He has a Ph.D. from DTU and is now a specialist in preventing stress with an MSc in Organisational and Business Psychology. Besides teaching courses, he stress-coaches both researchers and many others.

At this course, you will be introduced to a variety of techniques and tools you can use in your daily life.

During the workshop we will cover these topics:

• What is stress really?
• The difference between stress and being busy
• Becoming aware of your own stress
• Becoming aware of others stress
• How to prevent stress together
• How to create and maintain well-being
• Good and effective tools against stress
• How to perform without stress
• How to avoid that too little time is stressful
• How to control your thoughts
• Solutions to your own stress problems

The workshop will be a mixture of introduction talks by Bjarne Toftegård, and discussions in small groups. The participants will spend time reflecting on their own situation during the workshop.

Instructor: The workshop will be performed by PhD Bjarne Toftegård, founder of www.forebygstress.dk.

Date: 13 October 2022, 9:00 – 12:30 including breaks.

Venue: Mærsk tower, 7.15.152, Blegdamsvej 3, 2200 Copenhagen N
Registration deadline: 15 September 2022.

Note: All applicants are asked to submit invoice details in case of no-show, late cancellation or obligation to pay the course fee (typically non-PhD students). If you are a PhD student, your participation in the course must be in agreement with your principal supervisor.
