Are you feeling “burnt out” from writing your dissertation? Are you rethinking your commitment to your dissertation topic? Do you feel disconnected from the excitement you once felt about the work that you do? 
If you answered “YES!” to any of these questions, this workshop is for you! Join us to rediscover your passion for and reclaim your commitment to your research. There, you will have the opportunity to reflect on your experience, meet others sharing in your struggle, and refresh your perspective. 
Facilitator: Ariella Freedman, M.S. 
Ariella is a fellow at the Wellness Center and a current psychology doctoral student at St. John’s University. In addition to seeing GC students for individual therapy, she is also a co-leader of the Wellness Center’s Dissertation Support Group. She is intimately familiar with the dissertation process and will draw on her experiences as both a therapist and student to help you rediscover the passion that brought you here!

Please note that this workshop is open to registered graduate students of the CUNY Graduate Center & Journalism School only.
