Research-Based Strategies for Overcoming Imposter Syndrome
February 26, 2021, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm EST
Have you often succeeded at an academic task even though you were afraid you wouldn’t do well? Do you dread others evaluating your work? Do you tend to remember incidents when you haven’t done your best more than those when you have? Thoughts such as these are the hallmark of imposter syndrome thinking. This hybrid workshop shares insights from the scholarship on imposter syndrome and provides research-based strategies for overcoming imposter syndrome. In preparation for the workshop, please watch this asynchronous 45-minute lecture video that shares the scholarship on this topic. At the synchronous workshop on February 26, we will interact with each other and try several of the evidence-based strategies for overcoming imposter syndrome.
This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
