Staying on Track During a Pandemic 

Join APA for a weekly webinar series on practical strategies and expert advice for students, early career psychologists, and their allies. In these hour-long webinars, we’ll discuss topics ranging from completing your dissertation from afar to managing your finances.

Finding Presence Through Pilates

As we find ourselves facing new challenges arising from social distancing and isolation, it is more important than ever that we bring attention to our physical and mental well-being. Through a committed mindful movement practice, we can counteract the increased levels of stress and anxiety typical of an unfamiliar, unpredictable environment. Originally created to address health issues among those interned in camps during WW1, the Pilates method of exercise approaches the body as a whole system to move and breathe in a way that promotes self-healing. In this class, we will draw upon the original work of Joseph H. Pilates to keep the body flowing in the ways it was designed to function. While using the breath to facilitate each movement, we will bring awareness and awaken the connection between mind and body. Finding this relationship and using our senses to observe the environment, we will bring ourselves to the present and find peace in the now.

Preparing to Defend Your Thesis from Home

Due to COVID-19, defending your graduate thesis or dissertation in person is likely off the table.  That doesn’t mean you have to wait to defend. Many schools and programs are allowing remote defenses – meaning you could find yourself defending from your living room! Tune in for recommendations from a recent psychology doctoral student that completed a remote defense, a current dean of psychology, and APA’s Office of Graduate and Postgraduate Education and Training as we share how to prepare for and complete your thesis or dissertation defense remotely.  A Q&A period will follow.
