Event description
The Myth of Perfectionism: learning techniques and psychological resilience to prevent avoidable distress

About this Event

John Perry is a Principal Teaching Fellow in Healthcare Communication at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton. He is also a qualified Counsellor, Coach, Therapeutic Coach, Human Givens Psychotherapist, Reality Therapist, Hypnotherapist and Supervisor; and has a particular interest in Psychological Resilience and in challenging the Myth of Perfectionism.

In his experience as a university lecturer, pastoral tutor and counsellor, the single biggest cause of distress amongst young people in Higher Education has been a huge increase in the number of students who subscribe to the myth of perfectionism – young people feeling that they are inadequate or worse, that they are devoid of any value – unless they are perfect.

In this session, John will look at Learning the skills, techniques and understanding to prevent avoidable crises from arising through key components of psychological resilience.
