Working with UCL Student Psychological Services, UCLU are recruiting students to facilitate workshops for their peers in overcoming procrastination and perfectionism. 

These are free and confidential groups that offer participants the opportunity to focus on a specific difficulty with others who might be in a similar situation to themselves.

The workshops enable participants to develop coping mechanisms using CBT techniques and are psycho-educational, as an alternative or complementary to therapy.

We are looking for Group Facilitators who will deliver training and support participants working together through the course.

This is an ideal opportunity to develop skills in training delivery, psycho-education, leadership and facilitation.

The two workshops we are running are:

1. PROCRASTINATION – This is the act of putting off essential tasks until a later time, most of
the time non-essential tasks are done in lieu of the more critical ones. This workshop will
examine why we procrastinate, and ways in which this can be tackled looking at thoughts,
emotions and behaviours. This is a 5 week course and each session will be 2 hours long.

2. PERFECTIONISM – People who are perfectionistic tend to have standards and expectations
that are difficult or impossible to meet. Although having high standards is often helpful,
perfectionism is associated with having standards that are so overwhelmingly high that they
can actually interfere with performance. By attending this workshop participants will have
the opportunity to experientially learn and apply skills that can help with managing
perfectionism. This is a 4 week course and each session will be 1.5 hours long.
