The Perfectionist Therapist
Unhelpful perfectionism can affect therapists as well as their clients. This webinar will explore how behaviour analysis, exposure, ACT, and compassion-focused approaches can help those working in the helping professions to approach our desire to help and high expectations of ourselves with flexibility, courage, and compassion.
The presenter will first provide a clear and concise formulation of helpful and unhelpful perfectionism from a behavioural perspective. Then, using a blend of informative and experiential exercises, participants will reflect on unhelpful habits in themselves and their clients, exploring the drivers of perfectionism including fear of failure and self-criticism.
