Fear Less
Domain: B1 Personal qualities

Format of Workshop: Information and Discussion/Practical
Suitable for: All

This workshop will help you to understand how your body reacts to anxiety and increase your awareness and understanding about what triggers and maintains your anxiety. You will learn skills to identify and challenge unhelpful thoughts and behaviours and we will provide you with techniques for calming and regaining control of your body’s anxiety response. It is perfectly normal to feel anxious at the thought of delivering a lecture, a viva, or writing up your thesis. Sometimes our anxiety can become so overwhelming that we feel unable to focus on anything. You may find yourself unable to relax and sleep, increasing your stress and anxiety, detrimentally affecting your ability to concentrate and focus on your dissertation, leading to further anxiety, and so the cycle begins. By the end of the workshop you will:
* understand how your body reacts to anxiety
* increase your awareness and understanding of what triggers and maintains your anxiety
* learn skills to identify the unhelpful thoughts that exacerbate and maintain the anxiety, showing you how to challenge these and re-focus on your strengths
* learn techniques for calming and regaining control of your body’s response to anxiety
