Especially in the final stages of your BA or MA (for example in writing your thesis) there are recurring moments or prolonged phases in which doubts and insecurities about one’s project, professional future or person come up. These experiences can not only delay the progress of the project – up to the point at which one’s ready to temporarily give up – but also require a lot of strength and discipline in order to resume any kind of working rhythm. However, these crises are important parts of the working process, as they offer the chance to reflect both on the project as well as on one’s own personality. Thus, it is vital to find a constructive way of dealing with these periods in order to be conscious of one’s strengths and resources – and, ultimately, to activate your “grit”. This workshop focuses on the question of how to deal with times of crisis and strengthens participants’ personal resources for getting through these times.
