Do you ever feel like perfectionism holds you back in life and limits your personal, school or professional satisfaction and success? Many adults with ADHD struggle with wanting something to be right so much that it becomes difficult to start things and complete them. Although perfectionism can be motivating, it can also keep you overfocused on the end result and not the process of getting there. In this webinar, Dr. Sharon Saline provides you with the tools you need to stop setting unreasonable standards, engaging in negative comparisons to others and criticizing yourself for living with ADHD. You will learn how to understand and manage the causes of perfectionism, examine the role of imposter syndrome and decrease negative self-talk. You’ll walk away with effective strategies for reducing procrastination related to perfectionism, coping with persistent worry about being good enough and increasing your capacity for personal compassion. Armed with these resources, you can nurture the essential resilience you need to accept yourself as you truly are–perfectly imperfect.
- Understand the relationship between anxiety, perfectionism and ADHD
- Develop techniques for addressing imposter syndrome, fear of failure and toxic shame
- Set realistic expectations and increase the capacity for mindful self-compassion
