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. 

  • Thursdays, 10:30-12:00 pm from September 14 to November 30, 2017 in MBC 0309 
  • Tuesdays, 2:30-4:00 pm from October 10 to November 28, 2017 in Harbour Centre 2530

While this is an open group, space is limited. They ask that participants commit to attending every week. To register, contact the program facilitator Susan Brook via email at hcsgrad@sfu.ca to schedule a brief phone appointment and to ask any questions you may have.
