Do you see yourself as a perfectionist? Do you cringe at the phrase “good enough”? Do you sometimes find yourself spending hours on small, less important details because you want every bit of what you do to be ... perfect? Then this is the workshop for you.
When: Tuesday November 29th, 5-7pm (including dinner!)
Where: Room B3, Institute of Criminology
What can I expect from the workshop?
This will be an interactive workshop addressing the kind of perfectionism that leads to relentless striving and stress. The workshop will be lead by Vanessa Skinner from the University Counselling service, who has many years of experience in helping perfectionist Cambridge students. Using tools from cognitive behavioural and compassion focused therapy, she will help us to identify thought patterns that are related to unhelpful perfectionism, and ultimately guide us towards ways of changing these so that we can find different and more sustainable ways of relating to our work and life more generally. You will be encouraged to ask questions throughout, and can expect to gain new insights and ideas for how to bring about change in yourself. You’ll also get a free dinner, and a chance to meet like-minded PhD students in the cognitive/social/language sciences.
Registration is essential! To register please go to http://cambridgephdclinic.com/. Please register early to avoid disappointment as previous events have been oversubscribed. Registration closes Monday November 21st.
