moving from resistance to writing

Facilitator: Anthony Ocampo, PhD
  • Have you been putting off your writing all year by promising yourself that summer is when you'll buckle down and get it done?
  • Are you finding yourself continuing to procrastinate and avoid your writing even though summer has arrived?
  • Have you ever wondered why it is that you really want to write, but just don't do it until there's a looming external deadline?

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What resistance is and why academic writers experience it in pursuit of work we want and need to complete.

  • How to identify what's holding you back from writing and completing your ___________ (article, dissertation, book manuscript, grant proposal, etc...).

  • The three most common types of writing funk and how to move around them.

  • How to create the types community, support and accountability for your writing that will help you to ride through whatever type of writing funk you are currently experiencing.

About the Facilitator

Dr. Anthony Ocampo is a faculty member in the Department of Psychology and Sociology at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, and a Ford Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at the School of Public Policy at University of California, Riverside. His research and teaching focuses on immigration, race and ethnicity, and gender and sexuality. Dr. Ocampo has published articles in the leading journals in immigration studies and has completed two books (with Stanford University Press and NYU Press)—all while teaching an average of three classes each quarter. He is currently working on his first academic trade book about the underdogs and comeback kids within higher education based on his experience teaching at a predominantly minority institution. Dr. Ocampo’s research has been supported by the Ford Foundation, Haynes Foundation, the McNair Scholars Program, and the University of California Office of the President, and his publications have received several awards from the American Sociological Association. Beyond academia, he spends most of his time doing Crossfit and binging on Netflix. Dr. Ocampo participated in the Faculty Success Program in his first quarter as a tenure-track faculty in 2011, and has coached junior faculty and postdoctoral fellows in various fields since 2013. One of his main passions as an FSP coach has been to help new faculty—particularly those from underrepresented backgrounds—creatively incorporate their unique knowledge and perspectives into their research, teaching, and mentoring.


Professor Ocampo is also a certified Campus Workshop Facilitator for the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity. If you would like to invite him to give a workshop on your campus, contact our campus workshop coordinator: Ruben Jimenez (
