Workshop Resilienz

The highest priority in this workshop is to strengthen the mental immune system, the so-called resilience or mental resistance, in order to improve 
one's own stress resistance in everyday university life. To achieve this goal, participants will learn proven stress management techniques and how to use them effectively.

In addition, reflection processes are guided so that participants recognize their own potentials, strengths and resources, and
learn how they can use these to master difficult situations with confidence.

Based on the knowledge imparted as well as the techniques and strategies,
the psychological well-being of the students, their mental resilience, is to be promoted and strengthened so that hurdles and challenges in everyday university life can be overcome without stress or without any problems.
