  1. Describe the nature of perfectionism, including definitions, causes, and correlates
  2. Describe cognitive and behavioral strategies for treating perfectionism
  3. Describe cognitive and behavioral strategies for treating selected disorders that are often associated with perfectionism


Perfectionism is the tendency to adhere to unrealistically high, unreasonable and rigid standards (for oneself or for others). Recent research demonstrates that pathological perfectionism is a central transdiagnostic construct associated with a wide range of severe psychological disorders such as depression, generalised anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder and social phobia. This workshop aims to present evidence-based strategies to participants, allowing the evaluation and efficient treatment of pathological perfectionism. The focus will be on three types of intervention strategies (cognitive, based on exposure, and based on acceptance and full awareness) conducive to the treatment of pathological perfectionism and associated psychological disorders. The techniques taught come from recent sources, including two books published on the subject by Dr. Antony himself: When Perfect Isn't Good Enough (Antony & Swinson, 2009), intended for patients, and the treatment manual Cognitive Behavioural Treatment of Perfectionism (Egan, Wade, Shafran, & Antony, 2014). This workshop is a unique opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of pathological perfectionism, its etiological role within different psychological disorders and its cognitive-behavioural treatment.
