CSI Seminar: ‘Burnout and Stress’
October 17, 2023 @ 14:00 – 14:30 CEST
We are excited to host a new Coaching in Science Initiative (CSI) Seminar titled: ‘Burnout and Stress’
The number of people with a burnout diagnosis has sky-rocketed during the last decade and it is now considered to be one of our major national diseases. Stress is a natural and important reaction but when the response is kept active for too long it can have negative effects. In this seminar, we will cover some basic aspects of stress and burnout, and share personal experiences of going through a burnout process. Together we’ll discuss where we currently experience negative stress and what measures we can take to find and keep a sustainable balance in life.
Time: 14:00 – 14:30
Zoom link: https://kth-se.zoom.us/j/68847309081
On-site location: Gamma 2 lunch room
We will begin with a ca 20 min talk, held in Solna and over zoom. Then proceed with a reflection and discussion held only on-site. We encourage other sites to form watch parties, by listening in together to the talk and then hold their own discussion afterwards. Hopefully seeding many local chapters of CSI.
To help facilitate discussion and reflection, consider the follow starter questions:
Awareness: where do we experience high risk for negative stress in our lives?
Analysis: how well do I currently handle negative stress?
Alternative: how can we relate to burnout/stress, in ourselves and others?
Action: how will knowledge of burnout/stress change my decisions going forward?
