Loss is a deeply personal experience that doesn’t pause for our professional lives. At MoTiv, we recognize the distinct challenges faced by PhDs, postdocs, and professionals in academia. Balancing the demands of supervising students, fulfilling departmental obligations, and managing intense workloads, all while coping with personal loss, requires a nuanced approach. Our ‘Living with Loss’ sessions provide a dedicated space to address these unique needs, offering support, understanding, and growth.
Workshop Series Overview: Our series includes 4 workshops, each crafted to support understanding, healing, and connection within a small group setting of peers.
Group Composition and Personal Intake: We ensure a conducive environment for open discussion by keeping the group size limited (about 6 persons). A preliminary one-on-one intake session helps us tailor the experience to your specific circumstances, ensuring relevance and depth.
In addition to students, we also focus specifically on PhDs and postdocs because your context is different from that of students.
- You supervise students/researchers who require your full attention
- You have responsibilities to clients and obligations within the department
- Your commitment and concentration are required, which leaves little time to process a loss in a fundamental way
- Your home situation may also be so different that extra attention is needed.
- Focused Support: Addressing specific professional challenges such as supervising duties, client responsibilities, and departmental commitments amidst personal grief.
- Peer Connection: Sharing experiences with others in similar professional stages, fostering an environment of mutual understanding and support.
- Structured Processing: Engage in a course designed for in-depth exploration and processing of loss, acknowledging the high demands of your professional and personal life.
- Dedicated Space for Grief: Understanding that your unique position in academia adds layers to the grieving process, requiring tailored strategies and support.
- Personal Coaching: For those seeking a more personalized approach, we offer one-on-one coaching sessions tailored to your unique journey of grief.”
