UKCGE: Wellbeing When Writing: Supporting Mental Health & Wellbeing During the Doctoral Writing Process
Event summary
This workshop acknowledges that the very process of writing doctoral research is often ignored as a key factor frequently causing debilitating anxiety and stress. The overall aim of the workshop is to share best practice in supporting students in proactively tackling writing-related anxiety and stress and thus to improve confidence, resilience and a sense of wellbeing.

EVENT OVERVIEW

Using findings from a HEFCE-funded University of Westminster project, this workshop explores how to equip students with focused reflexive learning and practical skills to increase their positive experience of doctoral writing and to improve their strategies for coping with negative experiences.

The workshop will cover the role of retreats and workshops, and events for supervisors in supporting wellbeing while writing.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

The workshop will be of interest to all those involved in supporting the wellbeing of doctoral students, including supervisors, Heads/Deans of Graduate Schools, Graduate Registry staff, those in researcher development, and those involved in delivering academic writing support at doctoral level.

WHAT ARE THE EXPECTED OUTCOMES?

The workshop will share the findings of the Wellbeing When Writing project run at the University of Westminster in 2018/2019 and provide a place to share experiences across institutions. This will encourage the development of thinking and practice around the relation between writing and wellbeing for doctoral students.
