Procrastination group

Do you have problems with procrastination?

The Procrastination Group is intended for international students who have difficulty organising, or repeatedly postponing, work related to their studies. The purpose of the group is to work together to reduce procrastination and receive support in behavioural change. The group has about 16 participants and operates throughout the academic year. Participation is free of charge. 

The group meetings take place on Thursdays at 14:00–16:00 (via Zoom). 

During this time, we go through the basics of procrastination psychology and the various tools for breaking a pattern of procrastination.

The group meetings for all members (including newcomers) start directly after a 30-minute introduction.

Before you join the group, we want you to visit our webpage about procrastination, read the information and watch the Youtube seminar, so that you have a better understanding of the problem when we meet.

Metacognitive Group Therapy (MCGT)

Our Metacognitive Group Therapy is based on Adrian Wells’ Metacognitive Therapy for Anxiety and Depression (2009), which has led to demonstrably effective treatments for a number of different psychiatric problems.

This group treatment for worry and rumination is aimed at remedying repetitive negative thinking, which is theoretically understood as a transdiagnostic process underlying emotional disorders. Published research on treatments based on MCT show great promise and effect sizes are generally large, with participants showing significantly less engagement in worry and rumination as well as reduced anxiety and depression symptoms by the end of treatment (McEvoy, 2019; McEvoy et al., 2015; Thorslund et al., 2020).

Our treatment spans over six weeks, with weekly two-hour sessions as well as a follow-up (booster) after two months. The treatment is given in English, and both international and Swedish students are thus eligible to participate. Note that active participation during and in between sessions is a prerequisite. Moreover, you need an evaluation and referral from a clinician or counsellor at the Student Health Centre to be able to register.

The treatment's group format does not involve explicit self-disclosure. The approach is structured and resembles that of a regular course. The emphasis will be on learning strategies for dealing with worry and rumination, rather than examining individual history or personal issues. By participating, you get the opportunity to gain a better understanding of your problems and adopt new strategies for dealing with them.
