If you enter the dissertation phase asking yourself, “how am I ever going to survive this?”, you’re not alone. Manuscript revisions, feedback delays, and administrative conflicts can quickly transform feelings of celebration into exasperation. But instead of being consumed by the challenge, we can adopt a more empowered, self-determined approach to navigating the final milestone in our journey as doctoral students.

As we shift from ‘surviving’ to ‘thriving’ on the dissertation pathway, hear from Walden alum, Dr. Joshua Garrin, as he discusses practical strategies for remaining accountable, objective, and resilient in the face of everyday dissertation challenges. As Dr. Garrin shares his secrets for success, it might become evident that we all share the same secret: Having what it takes to survive dissertation is realizing that you already do.
