The pursuit of goals in childhood and adolescence shapes our work ethic and behaviors into adulthood. The achievement of goals can be a significant moment for any child/teenager. Achieving success at any capacity during childhood instills lifelong lessons of hard work and goal-oriented decisions. However, the process of achieving goals is where misconstrued concepts of perfectionism can seep in and detrimentally affect a child’s mental health. The purpose of this workshop is to define perfectionism through a child/adolescent lens, to examine where these belief systems originate, and to observe the various ways these concepts manifest themselves.
This Workshop will focus on three main areas of influence on a child/teenager:
1. Social: peers, teachers, coaches, etc.
2. Family: parents, siblings, extended family
3. Personal: individual thoughts and feelings
