Perfectionism: The hidden epidemic?
November 11, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
York Wellbeing Lecture
In this talk we will explore how the pressure to be perfect – in our social media feeds, in relationships, and at university and work – is driving a rise in mental ill-health. We’ll learn more about what perfectionism is (and what it isn’t), the causes of rising perfection, and how we can personally and collectively create a culture that promotes growth over perfection, and compassion over criticism.
Dr Thomas Curran
Dr Curran is Assistant Professor in Psychological and Behaviour Science at LSE. He studies the personality characteristic of perfectionism, how it develops, and how it impacts on the mental health of young people.
