Perfectionism Series

Many students are told that perfectionism is a good thing and necessary for success. However, studies show that perfectionistic attitudes can interfere with success. The desire to be perfect can both rob you of a sense of personal satisfaction and cause you to fail to achieve as much as people with more realistic expectations. This 3-part program helps students realize when perfectionism is more harmful than good and develop more realistic expectations. 

For Spring 2023, this three-part program will be offered twice. This program is open to all Illinois students—you do not need to be a current client of the Counseling Center.
