PGR Conversational Group launches this February

Published: 27 January 2017
PGR Converastional Group
This PGR Group will run from 9 February - 16 March 2017

"A problem shared is a problem halved."

Come and join your doctoral research peers. Come and share your thoughts, your personal and interpersonal experience as a doctoral researcher, or just come and listen to your peers do exactly that and then reflect together.

We know that studying for a PhD can be tough and sometimes you might need to step away from it and reconnect with others in a more humane way. The conversation group is an intimate group that aims to enable doctoral researchers to make meaningful connections with each other in a safe environment.

Facilitated by Toni Kippenberger, a counsellor from Enabling Services, you will be able to discuss issues that really matter to you, issues you might not necessarily want to share with your supervisors and perhaps issues that are emotionally charged or just a little sensitive. Whatever it is, come and tell us. We’re here to help.

This conversational group will take place on Thursday mornings at Highfield Campus. It will commence on 9 February 2017 and will run for six weeks finishing on Thursday 16 March.
