"...I do not know. Why yet I live to say 'this thing's to do', Sith I have cause, and will, and strength, and means, To do't... Examples gross as earth exhort me."(Hamlet 4.4.43-46)

Welcome! This web site was the result of an independent undergraduate study done in the summer of 1997. It is meant to serve as an overview, for the layperson, of the current research and treatment interventions concerning procrastination.

The web site looks at intervention techniques from two perspectives.

1) Popular interventions This includes an overview of self help guides for general procrastination, and a discussion of interventions for work and study.

2) Clinical Interventions This includes a complete taxonomy of the various types of clinical interventions as well as an outline of a clinical procedure recommended by Prof. Ferrari.

It also briefly explores some of the symptoms and causes of procrastination. The most important references and citations are listed at the bottom of each section as well as in a complete references guide ( I was limited in my access to some of the resources).
