In a world fixated on flawless performance, helping clients overcome perfectionism can feel like an uphill battle.

The pressure to meet unrealistic standards often leaves them stuck in a cycle of self-criticism and resistance to change.

And without the proper tools, therapists can unknowingly make these problems worse.

But there is hope – this comprehensive training with expert, Milly Feliz, offers a groundbreaking integration of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Metacognitive Therapy (MCT) and Internal Family Systems (IFS) informed Interventions that can help these clients learn to befriend the parts of them that so desperately want to avoid failure and reshape what it means for them to be successful.

Throughout this interactive session, you will learn how to:

  • Identify and name the parts that contribute to perfectionism so that your clients can unburden them
  • Apply cognitive defusion techniques to help alter the way your clients interact and respond to the thoughts rooted in perfectionism
  • Use Attention Training Techniques to help shift clients' focus away from worry and rumination associated with failure

With these proven strategies in your toolbox, you'll not only help clients ease rigidity but also foster lasting self-compassion and resilience.
