- common parenting practices that may contribute to perfecti
- perfectionism and its association with common mental health difficulties
- how parents and carers can help their child
- supporting the perfectionistic child/young person at school.
- a more developed understanding of perfectionism and its impacts
- strategies to support students and to work with parents and carers
- detailed notes and other resources.
