Overcoming Perfectionism

£12.99

Description

Perfectionism can be healthy but when it becomes unhealthy and turns into ‘clinical perfectionism’ (sometimes referred to as ‘dysfunctional perfectionism’) it can cause serious problems. It is associated with different mental health problems, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders and chronic fatigue syndrome. Those suffering from clinical perfectionism tend to judge themselves predominantly in terms of the pursuit and attainment of personally demanding standards and often feel unable to be flexible and change their goals, despite the significant negative impact that the pursuit of perfectionism may have on their quality of life.

The book covers how clinical perfectionism manifests itself and suggests effective coping strategies with invaluable guidance on how to avoid future relapse.
