Do you feel like you’ll never be a ‘good enough’ therapist? Do you over-prepare for sessions, or procrastinate on reports? You might be a perfectionist. Today on Mental Work, Bron is joined by Kate Christie (Psychologist in schools and private practice) to unpack perfectionism among therapists. They touch on ?? The role that perfectionism plays in burnout ?? How perfectionism shows up in the therapy room ? The benefits of perfectionism ?? Practical tips for reducing the downsides of perfectionism in our work.
Mental Work is the podcast unpacking the challenges faced by early career psychologists, so they don’t have to go it alone. Hosted by Dr Bronwyn Milkins.
