Perfectionism is a tendency to hold standards for oneself or others that are unreasonably high and overly rigid. It is a transdiagnostic construct associated with a wide range of psychological problems, including depression, anxiety and related disorders, and others. This workshop provides an overview of pathological perfectionism and evidence-based strategies for assessing and treating this problem, with an emphasis on cognitive strategies, exposure-based strategies, and cceptance-basedstrategies. Techniques are based on a number of recent sources, including the presenter’s evidence-based self-help manual, When Perfect Isn’t Good Enough and a therapist manual written by the presenter and colleagues, Cognitive Behavioural Treatment of Perfectionism. In addition, strategies for treating selected associated disorders (e.g., obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder, depression) will be discussed and illustrated using videorecorded vignettes.
- Describe the nature of perfectionism, including definitions, causes, and correlates
- Describe strategies for assessing perfectionism
- Describe cognitive and behavioral strategies for treating perfectionism
- Describe cognitive and behavioral strategies for treating selected disorders that are often associated with perfectionism, including OCD, social anxiety disorder, and depression
