Procrastination can be defined as a voluntarily delay of an intended course of action despite expecting to be worse-off for the delay, and is considered a persistent behavior pattern that can result in major psychological suffering, which in turn can constitute a major problem for many individuals. There a not many studies available on treating procrastination. A previous Internet based RCT with guided and unguided treatment aimed to decrease procrastination yielded positive results for individuals who volunteered to receive treatment. This current study has the aim to further increase the knowledge regarding treatment for procrastination. It is a RCT comparing unguided and group treatment aimed to decrease procrastination in a student population. Demographic data from the included participants and preliminary outcome data is presented. These results are discussed and compared to the previous RCT and other studies evaluating the effect of treatment aimed to decrease procrastination.
