Studyology is a course developed by myself and Ben Smith that teaches you some psychological strategies for tackling procrastination. It is built on the principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
I just finished delivering the course online to a small pilot group (a big shout out to that group as well!).
I recorded all the sessions and posted them, along with the supplementary materials on Oasis Online.
There are 5 sessions in total, each about 1 hour. Slides, as well as homework exercises and audio files are provided.
The breakdown of the sessions is as follows:
Session 1 – Psychological flexibility and the art of being present
Session 2 – Experiential avoidance and the mechanics of procrastination
Session 3 – Defusion, acceptance, grounding and arousal reduction
Session 4 – Values – what drives you to study?
Session 5 – Recap and understanding avoidance and how it is countered
By the end of the course, you will have a good working knowledge of the basics of ACT and how it is applied to understanding and tackling your procrastination behaviour.
We have every intention of running live sessions again, but in the meantime, feel free to access these materials in your own time.
You’ll also find a bunch of other wellbeing and productivity related stuff on Oasis Online, so have a look around whilst you are there.
Oh, and if you are wondering why it is called V3, it is because Studyology has existed in a couple of forms over its 3-year history 🙂
