Description

Do you often feel like a fraud, faking your way through graduate school, just waiting for your true inadequacies to be exposed for all to see?  Enduring and sometimes overwhelming feelings of fraudulence are central to psychological experience known as The Imposter Phenomenon.  In this interactive workshop, we will discuss The Imposter Phenomenon, and work to help students develop strategies to combat this often crippling experience.

You must be a currently registered GC student to participate.  Please bring your GC I.D. with you (must have the current validation sticker).  Sign up at the Wellness Center in room 6422, or download the workshop application here.

The Imposter Syndrome is characterized by feelings of inadequacy, even in the face of information that indicates that the opposite is true. It is evidenced by chronic feelings of self-doubt and intellectual fraudulence. This workshop addresses this very common phenomenon in graduate school and offers attendees the opportunity to discuss, commiserate and strategize ways to overcome it! - See more at: http://www.gc.cuny.edu/Prospective-Current-Students/Student-Life/Health-Wellness/Counseling-Services/Workshops#sthash.ADRmdL5O.dpuf
