Addressing Grad Students’ Feelings of Stress: An End-of-the-Semester “Coffee Break” — Fri. 12/2/11

In PROMISE: Maryland's AGEP on November 23, 2011 at 1:04 PM

It is common during this time of year to feel stressed about things that you want to accomplish before the end of the semester. If you’ve experienced  anxiety, irritability, apathy, disinterest in activities that you were formerly involved in, or loss of energy, it’s time to talk.  In an effort to address concerns of stress during these last few weeks of the fall semester, we would like to offer you an opportunity to take a coffee break.  Dr. Robert Deluty, Associate Dean of the Graduate School and Associate Professor of Psychology, will be joining us for this session.  If you are feeling overwhelmed and stressed about classes, end-of-the-semester projects, exams, or the holiday season, please come! If you are feeling alone, isolated,  or just want to have an opportunity to connect with others, please come! If you are a non-traditional graduate student or a first-generation graduate student, we encourage you to come! If you have been working to try to balance work and family, or if you are trying to balance other areas of your life and you need a listening ear, please come!
