Description

As part of the schedule of events for International Women's Day 2018, you are invited to attend a mental health workshop on Wednesday, March 7th.

“One can live magnificently in this world if one knows how to work and how to love”

(Tolstoy, letter to Valerya Aresenyev, November 9, 1856)

Many psychologists, including Erik Erikson, felt that happiness comes down to the ability to work well and love well. However, many of us feel that it is the demands of work and home, and the conflicts between these demands, that leave us feeling stressed and anxious.

This short lunchtime workshop will focus on the experience of anxiety in the context of balancing home and work life. This seminar will draw on Prof. Gary Donohoe’s experience as a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist working with adults at various stages of life. The focus of the workshop will be on building an understanding of the typical thoughts, feelings, and behaviours associated with various forms of anxiety. The workshop will be experiential, with attendees invited to join in on a small number of activities, and learning some practical steps for coping with the anxiety and stress we all encounter.

Check the Office of the Vice President for Equality & Diversity website for further information.

Lunch will be provided prior to the session.

Facilitator: Prof Gary Donohoe, School of Psychology
