Especially during the long periods of qualification (e.g. PhD, 2nd Book) for an academic post, there are re- occurring moments or prolonged phases in which doubts and insecurities about one’s project, career choice or person are clearly palpable.

These periods 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 constituents of the project’s process as they offer both the chance to reflect upon the project as well as on one’s own personality.

Thus, it is vital to find a constructive way of dealing with these periods of time 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 the participants’ personal resources for overcoming these times. This workshop is conducted as part of the WiNS Adlershof program (Women in Natural Sciences). This workshop is conducted as part of the WiNS Adlershof program (Women in Natural Sciences).
