This is a 6-week workshop for graduate students who are ex periencing difficulty maintaining motivation and/or making effective progr ess in the writing of their dissertation. This group is open only to stud ents who are actively working on and writing their dissertation full time. The group follows a brief, solution-focused model that utilizes short-t erm goal-setting in order to facilitate and maintain progress in the writi ng of the dissertation. Please note that this group does not focus on th e technical aspects of writing, and there will be no review of written wo rk in this group. Rather, the group is intended to help students stay on track to meet an expected draft, defense or graduation date. The group provides participants with a supportive, structured environment in which the presence of peers helps to mitigate the sense of isolation, frustrati on and anxiety that often accompany with dissertation writing process.
This group meets from Noon - 1:00 PM from September 21 - November 2 (no meeting on 10/12 due to Yom Kippur). Participants are required to attend a ll six sessions.
