Course Description

See Reviews of Instructor Bonnie Gonzalez

The goal of this class is to help the student learn the “why’s” and “how’s” of procrastination, and then work through the self talk and road blocks to successful accomplishments. We will be exploring the warning signs to procrastination, examining how we actually spend our time, learning methods for battling counterproductive messages, overcoming roadblocks to action, engaging more of the brain and working in the flow state, and building resilience in the face of setbacks. It has been my personal experience that this program can help students to conquer procrastination and move to a more productive habits.

Instructor Bio

Bonnie Gonzalez

The field of psychology is not only my career; it is also my passion. You might even call me a “psychology nerd.” Much of my free time is spent reading about new and interesting developments in the field. I have taught AP Psychology for the past 10 years to home school students. I have also taught Introductory Psychology and Developmental Psychology at local community colleges, and I have developed online seminars for healthcare providers on the topics of stress, communication, job burn-out, anger assessment and management, and boundary setting. I have 36 years of experience as a counselor in the field of individual, marriage, and family counseling where I have had the opportunity to instruct individuals in developing new and more productive behaviors. My degrees include an M.ED. in counseling psychology and a B.A in psychology, both received from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.
