Earlier lecture - Grief in the workplace

An Hooghe, Psychologist/ Relationship & Family Therapist, PhD 

Grief and loss are part of life, and so it is part of professional life. The impact of a drastic loss on professional life is particularly large AND the impact of the support that one receives from the professional context is also of importance for the grieving process. What are the challenges and guidelines when a colleague dies? What are some things to consider when supporting a colleague who has experienced a meaningful death? What can be done in the acute phase around death, and what should be taken into account in the long term? 

A lecture organized in collaboration with the compassionate communities center of expertise (COCO)

This lecture will take place at the VUB campus Etterbeek, auditorium QB.
Showing the Corona Safe Ticket + ID will be requested when entering this lecture.
Would you rather follow online, a virtual streaming will be provided.

Ealier lecture - Prevention of burnout: an ACT-ive approach

Margot GarrĂ©, clinical psychologist BRUCC & Lisa Aliaj, clinical psychologist in training BRUCC 

In times of stress we all have our habits. Initially, we often go a bit further, but if stress persists, we notice that this is not sustainable. What is stress and when does it become chronic? Our first reaction is often to look for ways to reduce the stress. How can I make sure that my batteries don't run out any further? We lose touch with what gives us energy and satisfaction. In this lecture we reflect on this process and together we try to increase the grip on your energy balance. How can ACT help you stay in touch with what is valuable to you?

This lecture will take place at the VUB campus Etterbeek, in the U-residence, green room.
Showing the Corona Safe Ticket + ID will be requested when entering this lecture.

Earlier lecture - Parenting teens in the digital age: Challenges and opportunities

Janis Whitlock, professor Cornell University & chair VUB 

The digital age has ushered forms of social interaction and knowledge acquisition unlike anything known in recorded human history. Because of this, few of us understand how the rapid and ongoing development of communication technology is affecting any of us, most especially our young people. Parents, especially, face the daunting task of how to raise healthy children in an era that seems to challenge everything we know about raising healthy children. With a focus on mental health impacts and an eye toward detailing both risks and opportunities parents face, this talk will summarize what we know and do not yet know about how the Internet, social media in particular, impacts youth development and wellbeing. We will wrap up with a group discussion of implications for youth, families, and youth serving providers.

This lecture will take place at the VUB campus Etterbeek, in the U-residence, green room.
If preferred, you can also follow live via streaming. The video of this lecture will be made available later via the VUB LRN platform.

Language: English
As the last lecture in our VUB Wellbeing series, we are opening this lecture to everyone for free!
