This drop-in series was developed especially for the doctoral students of the Graduate Center. This series will be facilitated Dr. Daniel Rothenberg of the Student Counseling Services/Wellness Center.

Practical dimensions of completing your dissertation
What you need to know about the “nuts and bolts”, as well as the complexities of completing the dissertation, selecting an advisor and what you must do in order to successfully navigate the dissertation completion process from beginning to end.

Personal dimensions of completing the dissertation
What you need to know about the personal dimensions of how you relate to your dissertation topic, your advisor, your family and friends in order to successfully complete the doctorate. What is the inner wisdom that you need to acquire in order to navigate the dissertation and avoid pitfalls on the road to a life in academia? This workshop will provide mindfulness skills, as well as awareness tools that you need to regulate your life and maintain clarity from the time that you begin your dissertation through the time that you obtain employment beyond the doctorate.
