UrFU to host workshop series on dealing with aggression

Graduate student Svyatoslav Kontar of Ural Federal University's department of psychology recently organized a series of 20 workshops, which begin Feb. 9, to teach faculty and students alike how to deal with aggression.

Kontar's workshop series will focus on the psychological pressures and aggressions that arise during the cold winter months.

Held over two days at UrFU's Institute of Social and Political Sciences, the 20 brief interactive lectures span such topics as time management, developing relationships and leisure activities.

Acclaimed Yekaterinburg business consultant Yuri Perun will join the workshop series as an instructor, teaching a small course on managing stress and aggressive behaviors in professional situations during the winter months.
