Do you set excessively high standards for yourself? Are you overly critical of your performance and abilities? Are you very afraid of failure or of making mistakes? Do you measure your self-worth in terms of your achievements? 

The first part of this workshop will help you recognize when perfectionism is taking over and gain strategies to reduce perfectionistic thinking and behaviours. You will learn how to strive in a way that fosters a more balanced and flexible relationship with yourself to help boost your well-being, engagement, and sense of competence.     

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand perfectionism, including its “causes,” driving forces, and consequences
  • Perform a self-evaluation to explore current perfectionistic tendencies
  • Apply strategies to strive for excellence and address limiting perfectionistic thinking and behaviours

Facilitator: Camila Velez, Psychotherapist
