Do you procrastinate? Do you delay important tasks that need to get done? Procrastination involves a voluntary delay of an intended action, even though it may lead to negative consequences. Although academic procrastination hinders academic achievement and mental well-being, it is quite common in university students. 

In this two-part workshop, you will learn about the nature and types of procrastination and the connection between procrastination and difficulty in emotional regulation. You will also learn some evidence-based strategies to overcome procrastination, including self-regulation and emotion regulation techniques.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define and identify different types of procrastination 
  • Understand procrastination through the self-regulation failure model
  • Adopt effective and evidence-based strategies to address procrastination 
  • Become aware of different resources to cope with procrastination
