About This Workshop

It has been said that perfectionism is a trait that makes life an endless report card on accomplishments or appearances. Join us to discover how perfectionism can affect you and your children, and strategies that you can use to reduce it within your family.  The tendency toward perfectionism has increased significantly among young people over the past 30 years. It can be associated with depression, anxiety, eating disorders and even suicide. The needs to feel accepted and to be cared about tend to drive perfectionism and without treatment, may get worse over time. 

Perfectionists strive for flawlessness in themselves and/or in others. If you’re wondering whether you have these tendencies, the chances are that you do to one degree or another.
