This is a 6-week workshop for graduate students who are exp eriencing difficulty maintaining motivation and/or making effective progre ss in the writing of their dissertation. This group is open only to stude nts who are actively working on and writing their dissertation full time. The group follows a brief, solution-focused model that utilizes short-te rm goal-setting in order to facilitate and maintain progress in the writin g 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 wor k 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 p rovides participants with a supportive, structured environment in which t he presence of peers helps to mitigate the sense of isolation, frustratio n and anxiety that often accompany with dissertation writing process.
This group meets from Noon - 1:00 PM from September 21 - November 2 (n o meeting on 10/12 due to Yom Kippur). Participants are required to attend all six sessions.
Facilitator: Aislinn Sapp, M.A., Coordinator o f Graduate Student Support Groups
