Podcast #226. ACT for Perfectionism with Jennifer Kemp & Debbie Sorensen
At its best, perfectionism supports achievement and success. However, more often, it prevents you from taking risks for fear of failure. It can leave you feeling like no matter what you do, you’ll never be good enough. In this episode of Psychologist’s Off the Clock, Jennifer and Debbie Sorensen discuss perfectionism; what it looks like, and how you can apply Acceptance and Commitment Therapy strategies to target unhelpful perfectionistic behaviors. Learn about the cost of perfectionism in relationships and the need to avoid emotional discomfort that drives perfectionism.
