Course on burn-out prevention

FLOURISHING FOR PH.D. STUDENTS

More than 14% of employees in the Netherlands suffer from symptoms related to burn-out*. Unfortunately, among Ph.D. students the percentage is even higher!

According to researchers Ready, Conger en Hill**, the general health of people in their twenties and thirties is largely dependent on the degree to which they are able to acquire skills to:

  • Increase self-insight
  • Manage stress effectively
  • Utilize their personal and professional potential

Because behavioural change is crucial in either preventing burn-out or recovering from burn-out, LifeLong has developed an effective approach to help Ph.D. students experience higher levels of happiness and well-being in their daily lives.

So, if you’re a Ph.D. student and you would like to learn how to prevent or effectively manage burn-out symptoms, sign up for our “Flourishing for Ph.D. students” course!
