What is emotionally challenging research? How does recognizing your emotions during research lead to more ethical and methodologically sound practices? If you are interested in learning more, please watch the recording of this 30-minute webinar.
During this session, the presenters provided an overview of the newly released CONVERGE Conducting Emotionally Challenging Research Training Module. The webinar described how hazards and disaster researchers can cope with and harness the power of emotions in research. In addition, it showed how the module functions and the resources associated with it.
The Conducting Emotionally Challenging Research Training Module—developed with support from the National Science Foundation—is now available via the CONVERGE website. We hope you will access it. Educators can also find additional resources at the CONVERGE Training Module Assignment Bank.
Please also remember to sign-up for updates for future events and free resources through the CONVERGE website.
