Do you avoid what has to be done, get overwhelmed by deadlines, experience work blocks, feel stuck? Procrastination is a habit that can be broken. This very successful workshop run jointly by the Student Counselling Service and the Institute for Academic Development (IAD) combines a psychological and practical approach in a supportive group setting culminating in each participant writing their own action plan. We look at what procrastination is, what keeps you doing it, what you could do differently, and how to stop putting things off and get on with your life.
This workshop is run jointly by the Student Counselling Service and the Institute for Academic Development. The topics covered will include: work/life balance; accessing support systems and reducing isolation; staying motivated through difficult phases of PhD and working with a Supervisor.
The aim is to increase understanding of the issues from a more psychological perspective whilst also being aware of the academic pressures; to suggest new strategies and to move away from a sense of isolation. It will provide the opportunity to meet with students in a similar situation and to give each other support and encouragement.
