Do you sometimes struggle when communicating with your advisor or PI, or feel that s/he doesn’t entirely understand or respond to your concerns? Or do you have a collegial and productive relationship in which you feel satisfied, encouraged, and heard? Either way, shaping and improving your evolving relationship with your advisor(s) can have a profound influence on your scholarship, productivity, healthy development, and sense of fulfillment. Come to this workshop to explore strategies to effectively communicate your needs and expectations to advisors; ask for assistance when “stuck”; navigate conflict; and “manage up” so that all parties feel empowered and supported. CPS Outreach Psychologist Jess Joseph will co-lead this workshop, offering cognitive and emotionregulation strategies tailored to managing ‘hard conversations’ and challenging interactions.
