Session 5: Grad School and Stress Management

This is probably one of my favorite things to talk about.There's the ideal stress management techniques that you read about online... and then there's the reality of grad school. They are not the same. haha

Finding what works for you takes some time, but I'm here to guide you through it and tell you all the things I've learned the hard way. For me it's a mix of small daily practices and habits for yourself, mindset shifts and reframes, and figuring out what's me actually recharging vs numbing out. I know this might seem a bit "hippie dippie" but I promise it's helpful.

Homework: test out and get familiar at least three of the resources discussed (this way you have one less thing to worry about when school starts)

Your 1-1 Sessions:

Grad School Writing Track (4 Sessions)

This is a 4 session track designed to assess your grad school writing strengths and weaknesses, and then take you through a sample writing assignment to put to use the skills you've learned in the group sessions, plus teach you any additional techniques that may help you.


Individual Uses

Your 6, 1-1 Sessions can be used towards whatever you need. You don't need to decide now. You can schedule as needs pop up during your semester.


(However, I cannot stress enough how helpful it is to use one of your 1-1 sessions to plan out your semester with me. While not mandatory, I highly recommend you use one of your sessions for this.)


1-1 Session #1: Strategy Session (strongly recommended)

- Review goals (semester and long-term) and habits together

- Identify areas of concern for the semester and form plan 

- Review your calendar/semester planning together

You might find the following sessions helpful:


1-1 Session: Mid Semester Check-In

- Progress towards goals check in 

- Stress/Coping skills check in

- Study schedule refresh/adjustments if necessary


Session 1-1 Session: Semester Debrief

It might seem superfluous but there is actually a bunch of evidence to support the power of reflection in regards to growth and improvement. It's helpful to figure what you did well and how to best utilize that in the coming semester, and what didn't go well that you can change for next semester
