The doctoral phase is a very intense and emotional phase. This is why conflicts between, for example, supervisor and doctoral student may arise. In most cases, these conflicts can be solved with a talk between both parties. It is possible, though, that a conflict may not be resolved quite as easily in a one-to-one. In this case there is the risk that the doctoral student’s performance may suffer. For these situations, the specialist contact persons of the GGS are at your disposal. Together, you can try and find a solution to your problem.
Should you be in a conflict situation, please contact Prof Dr Christoph Benicke. Your concerns will be treated as confidential.
You would like to seek advice outside of the GGS‘ conflict counselling service? Then please contact the Ombudsperson’s Office of the JLU Giessen.
