About the Graduate Student Seminar 

Faculty will learn how to facilitate a graduate-level seminar on the topic of enhancing well-being and professional success. Based on the successful graduate course created by Dr. Dewa, the course teaches skills to deal with common graduate school stresses by introducing graduate students to the scientific evidence regarding stress and wellness. The skills introduced in this course can be used both personally and professionally. The topics covered will be similar to those in this syllabus
