Dissertation/Thesis Support Group

February 24, 2017

Writing a dissertation or thesis can be a challenging time. Feelings of being blocked or stuck, overwhelmed, frustrated, isolated, or unsupported can interfere with the process of writing and research. You are not alone. Organized by SFU Health and Counselling, this support group is designed for any graduate student writing a thesis or dissertation who is experiencing distress or discouragement. Its aim is to help students reconnect with their creativity and motivation. 

  • Duration: February 23 – April 6, 2017 
  • Date and time: Thursdays, 12:00 – 1:30 pm 
  • Venue: Maggie Benston Campus, Room 0309, SFU Burnaby 

While this is an open group, space is limited. We ask that participants commit to attending every week. To register, make an intake appointment at SFU Health and Counselling Services by calling 778-782-4615 in Burnaby Campus, 778-782-5200 in Vancouver or Surrey. 

You can also contact the program facilitator, Susan Brook via email at to schedule a brief phone appointment and to ask any questions you may have.
