Lazy?...or a Perfectionist?
Limited Capacity seats available

“Lazy’, ‘defiant’, ‘uncooperative’, or ‘not working up to potential’. These are familiar ways of  describing students, and ourselves when we are stymied by a perceived lack of engagement. What if the real reason for that behavior wasn’t one of those at all? What if the student was actually a perfectionist?

In this session we will:
Investigate the relationship of paralysis, procrastination, purposeful practice, shame, and underachievement in the life of a perfectionist;
Examine the reasons why perfectionism can have the above negative associations from the outside observer, and actually have a totally different cause inside the perfectionist;
Explore ways perfectionists can to move from negative/maladaptive perfectionism to positive/adaptive perfectionism.

This presentation will incorporate the work of Silverman, Schuler, Adelson, Wilson, Burns, Mendaglio, and Van Gemert, as well as many years of personal work with perfectionists.

Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of perfectionism, its manifestations, strategies for working with perfectionists, and resources for future reference and study.
