Getting Help for ProcrastinationTop Rated Procrastination is a common issue amongst students and many adults. There are many who struggle with deadlines everyday, with the feeling of impending doom as the exam or project date looms. It is one of the largest problems seen in college counseling centers, and it is something nearly everyone has had to deal with at some point in their lives. This article describes strategies to help yourself overcome procrastination.
The first thing you have to know about procrastinating is that you should set your expectations realistically. It took you a lifetime to get to where you are today in terms of procrastination, so it's not something you can fix overnight. But it is something you can fix, all you need is the dedication to do so and the willingness to try something new. http://psychcentral.com/library/procrastinate2.html -

Domestic Violence Against Men: Bryan's Story by Dr. Angie Panos In this article, Dr. Angie Panos discusses male victims of domestic violence.
"On Bryan's initial visit to see me, he complained of marital concerns and depression. It took until our third session before he told me that his wife would sometimes beat him around the face and head, even while he was asleep. A year prior, she beat him so hard that he lost all hearing in one ear. He lied to cover it up when he went to get medical treatment; he was too embarrassed to tell the truth. Now when his friends ask why he has hearing problems, he tells them it was a hunting accident." http://www.giftfromwithin.org/html/dvam.html -

EEOC: The Mental Health Provider's Role in a Client's Request for a Reasonable Accommodation at Work The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has created a new fact sheet for mental health providers, "The Mental Health Providers Role in a Clients Request for a Reasonable Accommodation at Work." This fact sheet explains to mental health providers that their clients may be able to get reasonable accommodations that help to avoid problems at work related to their conditions. It also answers questions about when a client has the right to obtain a reasonable accommodation; the types of accommodations that may be available; the kind of documentation that could help the client obtain an accommodation; and the importance of disclosing the need for an accommodation before problems occur.
The EEOC enforces federal antidiscrimination laws by investigating, conciliating, mediating, and litigating charges of employment discrimination brought by members of the public. http://www.eeoc.gov/eeoc/publications/ada_mental_health_provider.cfm -
