On Friday, November 5th and Saturday, November 6, in a hybrid model, lectures and workshops were held on the topic of Student life: spirituality and psychotherapy in the fight against stress, organized by the Student Association of the Faculty of Islamic Studies and Homework HUB.
On the first day, lectures were given by Ahmed Tabaković, Chief Imam in Bergamo Italy, who gave a lecture on the topic: How to deal with stress? – spiritual techniques.
Amina Katica, Homework HUB #CommunityBuilder went through useful methods of time management with the participants, with special remarks on the methods she used during her studies. We hope students will find these methods useful in the coming weeks before the exams, to control the stress more easily.
On the second day, the workshops were organized on the topic of burnout and How to overcome burnout syndrome? by Berina Bulatović and Anisa Čelik, students from the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Sarajevo.
Professor Lejla Hasandedić Đapo, from Akdeniz University from the Republic of Turkey, gave a lecture on the topic: How to deal with failure/success – spiritual and psychological aspect. In his presentation, prof. Đapo gives us the following techniques that could be helpful:
- thanks to gratitude
- keeping a diary
- visualization of success
- find everyday inspiration
- take care of your mental health
- create habits.
When creating the topics, we were helped by a previously conducted and answered survey in which over 50 students of all universities in the Canton of Sarajevo participated.
We believe participants learned a lot, and now it is up to them to start practicing what they have learned and to enter the exam weeks without much stress.
This is the third workshop on mental health for young people organized by Homework HUB together with our partners. As we have pointed out before, the focus of our activities in the coming period will be mental health in education.
Project: Student Life: Spirituality and Psychotherapy in the Fight Against Stress, is the fourth in a series of projects by Homework HUB and partners, this time with USFIN, and supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Science.
