This is a 6-week workshop for graduate students who are expe riencing difficulty maintaining motivation and/or making effective progres s in the writing of their dissertation. This group is open only to studen ts who are actively working on and writing their dissertation full time. The group follows a brief, solution-focused model that utilizes short-ter m goal-setting in order to facilitate and maintain progress in the writing of the dissertation. Please note that this group does not focus on the technical aspects of writing, and there will be no review of written work in this group. Rather, the group is intended to help students stay on t rack to meet an expected draft, defense or graduation date. The group pr ovides participants with a supportive, structured environment in which th e presence of peers helps to mitigate the sense of isolation, frustration 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.
Facilitator: Aislinn Sapp, M.A., Coordinator of Graduate Student Support Groups
