Absolutely perfect?

Perfectionism through a magnifying glass

Perfectionism is a possible cause of increasing discomfort, stress, worry, insecurity, low life satisfaction, and poor mental health among young women in the age group 16-24 years. This lecture puts the perfectionist tendencies under the spotlight with focus on maladaptive perfectionism. Maladaptive perfectionism is associated with the development of mental health problems of varying degrees and linked to destructive patterns of anxiety, depression, and risk of suicide. In the lecture, definitions of perfectionism and its symptoms and causes are given. Based on research findings, an educational psychological mental health framework, PERFECT MINDS©, for how maladaptive perfectionism can be prevented and treated is proposed.

The framework is directed for use in secondary and higher educational settings as a combined evidence-based and evidence-informed intervention with the aim of lowering unhealthy high standards, but also aimed at promoting more positive reactions from the perfectionist when trying to live up to ideals. This focus on reducing negative responses is consistent with the development of clear and emotional self-regulatory skills that can act as buffers. During the lecture, dialogue and small exercises are facilitated.

The lecture is aimed at teachers, student counselors, managers and other pedagogical staff or consultants in secondary and higher educational settings.
