GSS and HLI Workshop- Breaking Patterns of Procrastination
January 23, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am PSTFree
Procrastination is a common enough experience for of us, but it can cause significant stress, difficulties in planning and deprive you of a feeling of accomplishment and calm as you work. If you find yourself identifying with some of these struggles, this workshop is for you.
Most pop psychology ideas about procrastination are based on the (erroneous) idea that it is primarily a time management issue. The reality is that most people’s procrastination struggles have little to do with time management.
Shifting out of a procrastination habit takes effort, knowledge, and the right strategies. In this session, you will take a deep dive into the psychology of procrastination and introduce a framework for you to understand your own struggles in a new and empowering way. You will create your own procrastination profile so you can identify quickly what is happening when you get stuck. And you will learn a variety of strategies to work within your own profile to help you shift out of avoidance and passivity into an action oriented mode.
Speaker: Alex Abdel-Malek, MSW, RCC, is a psychotherapist and professional educator devoted to the question of how meaningful choices affect our health and wellbeing.
