NIH OITE Mental Health and Wellness Webinar Series
January 5, 2022
The NIH Office of Intramural Training & Education (OITE) welcomes you to participate in the second installment of their Mental Health and Well-Being webinar series focused on anxiety and anxiety disorders for the research community.
In the webinar we will provide concrete tools for managing anxiety, specifically targeted for biomedical researchers, but relevant to all researchers. Strategies will include ways to manage physical sensations associated with anxiety and tools for healthy distraction to reduce rumination.
Additionally, the seminar will explore topics of how to cope with fears (including imposter fears) in an adaptive, helpful manner. The webinar will be followed by an hour-long small group discussion facilitated by an OITE wellness advisor.
There will also be two supplemental sessions offered later in January, one focused on perfectionism and other specifically addressing social anxiety; information on the follow-up sessions will be sent to those who register for the webinar. You can use the same link to watch the webinar later, typically 12-24 hours after the live webinar. This series is open to everyone at NIH and beyond.
