Helping others with flexibility, courage, and compassion. Date: 11 November 2021, 6-7.30pm Price: S$ 150

About this event

What is about?

Do you believe you should be able to help every client?

Do you criticise yourself if a client doesn’t improve?

Do you attend courses or buy books so you will finally be ‘good enough’?

Do you strive to deliver ‘perfect’ interventions only to find this impossible to achieve?

Unhelpful perfectionism can affect therapists as well as their clients. This webinar will explore how behaviour analysis, exposure, ACT, and compassion-focused approaches can help those working in the helping professions to approach our desire to help and high expectations of ourselves with flexibility, courage and compassion.

The presenter will first provide a clear and concise formulation of helpful and unhelpful perfectionism from a behavioural perspective. Then, using a blend of informative and experiential exercises, participants will reflect on unhelpful habits in themselves and their clients, exploring the drivers of perfectionism including fear of failure and self-criticism.

What will you learn?

Participants will discover how to:

• Unhook from unhelpful perfectionistic behaviors

• Practice self-compassion to deliver ‘imperfect’ yet effective work that can helps their clients, trainees, communities, and themselves.
