Understanding and treating Perfectionism

Today the three professors Tracey Wade, Sarah Egan and Roz Shafran visited our department. They recently published the first evidence-based framework for treating clients struggling with perfectionism “CBT of perfectionism“. A “perfect” book about perfectionism ;-) Here you can read a sample chapter from the book: http://www.guilford.com/excerpts/egan.pdf

Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Perfectionism
The new book!

The purpose of the visit was to discuss a possible treatment study with me and Gerhard Andersson from Sweden and these super-knowledgeable English speaking researchers.

Besides a all the methological discussions they treated us with a free open – and very appreciated – lecture entitled: “Understanding and treating Perfectionism”.
