A workshop series designed to empower students to find a better balance between being in school and caring for others.
Do you avoid school work and find that all your time is taken up with family responsibilities and other commitments? Are you behind on your readings and assignments and cramming to finish at the last minute? Do you feel a great deal of stress and anxiety about deadlines and continually put them off?
If you struggle with some of these issues, this workshop can help. Through group discussion and hands-on activities, you will learn the reasons for procrastination, identify your personal procrastination habits, and learn practical strategies to develop more effective work habits.
Participants are encouraged to bring their course schedule, course syllabi, and any day-timers or family calendars they use to the workshop.
Facilitator: Meghan Litteljohn, Academic Success Centre, University of Toronto.
