• Recover From A Bad College Semester

    The BounceBack! Workshop helps college students design a semester success plan, increase psychological resilience, and maintain a success mindset

  • Why Do College Kids Fail?

    30% of first year college students DO NOT return for their second year, 50% don't graduate, and over 80% report feeling "overwhelmed." College students are negatively labeled and most struggle with career transition even if they do graduate.


    Why all the challenges? Because students are never taught, tested, or graded on the key skills connected to successful college adjustment. Often, their lifestyle design is not aligned with developing confidence or to effectively respond to stress and adversity.


    Results: They fail, never reach their potential, and lack career skills.


    What is needed to prevent this? Psychological Readiness. Confident, resilient, emotionally intelligent students. The 2-day BounceBack! Workshop is the solution to recovering from a bad semester. The workshop teaches students how to respond to failure, recognize personal strengths, maintain a success mindset, and design a semester success plan. Students learn how to maximize potential, prioritize their psychological health, manage stress, and develop a college success mindset.

    “Take On College is an awesome program for anyone trying to maximize their peak performance.”

    - R.J. University of Colorado

    “Dr. Joel has been one of the most helpful advisors I have ever encountered during my academic career.”

    - S.H. Montclair State University

    “Dr. Joel was easy to talk to and very accessible. I was able to work through many of life’s obstacles with his help, and developed skills to conquer those obstacles without his direct help. He was supportive and nonjudgmental.”

    - C.M. Ramapo College of NJ

    “Dr. Joel was always, always there for me when I needed him. When I needed to talk about my feelings and express myself he was always an intent and alert listener, and I never doubted that he heard what I was saying. When I needed to not talk about my feelings, and just needed someone to chat with about life or motorcycles or school, he always indulged me. I have never spoken to anyone better attuned to their listener nor more encouraging and truly supportive. I never had an issue with scheduling times or any sort of the structural issues commonly seen with professionals in the field. Dr. Joel is communicative by phone, email, and text, and really made the extra effort to always make me feel important.”

    - K. J., Rutgers University
