 Dealing with Perfectionism

At this meet up Professor Windy Dryden will present a short seminar on dealing with perfectionism. This will be followed by some live sessions with volunteers, hopefully relating to the topic of perfectionism.

Perfectionism is sometimes regarded as a positive attribute and something to strive for however this trait can be self-defeating and lead to emotional and behavioural problems.

In this seminar Professor Dryden will cover:

• The key definitions of perfectionism

• The emotional consequences of perfectionism

• The behavioural consequences of perfectionism

• Why do we value perfection?

• Whether perfectionism is a positive or negative attribute

• Can perfectionism help us in our success, goals and achievement?

• Can perfectionism make us happy?

This will be a useful seminar whether you are a therapist, coach or for your own personal development.

City CBT Coaching College will provide a continuing professional development (CPD) letter confirming two hours of CPD.
