Cost:

After over a year in isolation, it is not surprising that many of us might feel socially 'rusty'. Many of us have experienced loneliness and social isolation during the pandemic, although individual circumstances have made for varied experienced. Whether the return to campus will be familiar to you or not, it will take time to adjust to in-person interactions ranging from casual conversations with peers, to difficult conversations with supervisors, to formal meetings on committees.

Begin the return to campus on the right foot and join Dr. Shalini Nag for a two-part interactive virtual workshop series to discuss the fundamentals of interpersonal interactions and working well with others.

Session 1 will focus on understanding how our identifies and social styles impact interpersonal dynamics and common challenges.
Session 2 will cover the inevitiability of conflict, including both positive vs. negative conflict, and will include conversations techniques to navigate difficult situations and case scenarios.

Attendance at session 1 is required to attend session 2.
