Raising a Resilient Scientist Series 2 – Dec 14
December 14, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:15 pm EST
“Promoting Trainee Resilience”
Workshops and Trainings for Extramural Faculty
Office of Intramural Training & Education (OITE) has created workshops and other training activities to support extramural principal investigators (PIs) and staff as they manage and lead biomedical research groups.
If you are an intramural PI, please see your series here.
Raising a Resilient Scientist Series: Five units, covering communication, resilience, inclusivity, conflict and feedback, and trainee wellbeing, will help PIs and staff support your biomedical trainees. Each unit will explore ways to manage common challenges in research groups by means of a webinar (to watch in real-time or via a recording) and facilitated small groups designed to build a community to improve training across the US. You are encouraged to attend the entire series, but each unit may be attended as a stand-alone.
Resilience helps those in high-knowledge environments succeed. This session will address barriers to trainee resilience, including cognitive distortions and imposter fears. It will emphasize ways and provide practical applications to encourage resilience in trainees in areas as such as fostering a growth mindset, promoting realistic self-talk, and modeling self-care and wellness as a priority in your research environment.
