Theme: Procrastination, Stress, and Well-being

6th Biennial Conference

Toronto at dusk

Counseling the Procrastinator in Academic Settings

Please join us August 4-5, 2009 at York University in Toronto, Canada for this 6th biennial conference on procrastination. The first conference was held in 1999, and now 10 years later we will be gathering back at York to share research and counseling perspectives on procrastination.

This year’s theme focuses on the links between procrastination, stress, and mental and physical well-being, as we explore what we know, what we still need to know, and what can be done to improve the well-being of procrastinators in academic settings and elsewhere.

Although it is hard to imagine any of our work related to procrastination that doesn’t involve a discussion of well-being, we welcome submissions that focus on other topics related to procrastination.

Date: August 4-5, 2009

Location: York University, Toronto, ON, Canada

Chair: Fuschia M. Sirois, PhD

Aim: To bring together counselors and researchers to share their perspectives on procrastination

Registration Due Date: July 31, 2009

For those who are interested, the American Psychological Association (APA) 117th Annual Convention follows directly afterwards on August 6-9, also in Toronto, Canada. The two conferences can be combined into a single trip. We will be offering the option of distance access via teleconferencing to those who are not able to join us in person.
