Raising a Resilient Scientist Series 5 – Mar 8
March 8 @ 12:00 pm - 2:15 pm EST
“The Mental Health and Well-being of Your Trainees”
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.

Our trainees operate under considerable stress, with anxiety and depression in biomedical trainees occurring at higher rates than in the general population. This can have a significant impact on research and research groups. Leaders and mentors often are the first to notice the struggles of their trainees. The webinar will focus on structuring your environment to promote a well lab, recognizing stressors, supporting trainees during difficult times, appropriate boundaries, and when and how to connect them to resources when appropriate. It will also touch on some ways you can find support for yourself as you support your trainees.
