Perfectionism is common in children and adolescents and there is evidence to suggest that it is becoming more prevalent. Perfectionism, when it occurs in children and adolescents, can affect their well-being, relationships with others, their learning, and their ability to enjoy common, everyday experiences.

It is important for professionals working with children and young people to be able to recognise perfectionism when it occurs, understand the possible impact of perfectionism on children and young people, and be able to help the young person and their parents or carers take steps towards managing it.

The training will cover:

  • the impact of perfectionism on children and young people
  • 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.

Key takeaways               

  • 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.
