NCFDD: Overcoming Academic Perfectionism

Do you struggle to share your writing at early stages because it's not perfect? DO you find yourself devastated by criticism of your work? Do you beat yourself up every time the tinest thing goes wrong? Is it difficult for you to celebrate other people's success because it reminds you of your own shortcomings? If any of these things sound familiar, CONGRATULATIONS! You're a perfectly normal perfectionist! This only problem is that the nature of the Academy is likely to exacerbate your perfectionist tendencies, as opposed to minimize them. In this webinar, perfectionists will unite to get clear about the causes and consequences of excessive perfectionism, the features of academic life that intensify perfectionism, strategies to identify when yoru perfectionism is at work, assess whether it is useful or debilitating and adjust your standards and behavior accordingly and the secret to finding real satisfaction in every step of the writing process.

Join Assistant Professor of Social Work, Yi-Ping Hsieh, for the NCFDD Webinar titled: Overcoming Academic Perfectionism and debrief to follow. This webinar is brought to you in collaboration with the institutional membership UND holds with the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD).
