with Menije Boduryan-Turner, PsyD
Note: Presented on Zoom.
Perfectionism is a misused and misunderstood condition. Perfectionism is not the same as doing your best. It is not a motivator or a compliment. So what is the Perfectionism? How does it impact one’s mental health? Perfectionism is based on the core belief that “I am not enough” and drives one to pursue unrealistic and unattainable goals and expectations. It leads to shame, self-loathing, and disconnection from self and others. It can be the cause or a symptom of many mental health conditions, including but not limited to anxiety, addiction, depression, eating disorders, and codependency. Learning to manage one’s Perfectionism must include breaking the perfectionistic tendencies, thoughts, and patterns. Through exposure, one can learn to do things imperfectly and embrace the discomfort. Embracing imperfections and remaining self-compassionate are essential tools in one’s tool box to manage perfectionism.
Educational goals include:
- Understand the signs and symptoms of Perfectionism.
- Learn about the impact of Perfectionism on one’s mental health.
- Learn skills to challenge Perfectionism.
In successfully completing and attending this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Define Perfectionism.
- Identify the relationship between perfectionism and mental health disorders.
- Learn three tools based on cognitive and behavior approaches to better embrace imperfections.
Menije Boduryan-Turner, PsyD is a licensed psychologist in private practice in Los Angeles, CA, specializing in the treatment of a variety of mental health issues, including but not limited to obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders, addiction, and codependency. Dr. Menije is the founder of Perfectionism University - an online psycho-education platform for unlearning Perfectionism. Her goal is to create a community where we can all unlearn Perfectionism and start our journey of embracing imperfections and owning our enoughness. She knows one can be a prisoner of their perfectionism. Her hope for others is that they turn the judgment to compassion and ultimately live a life where they embrace imperfection rather than striving for perfection. She has been featured in many world-renowned and prestigious media outlets, including KTLA news, magazines Fatherly, PsychCentral, and Healthline where she talked about Atelophobia - the fear of imperfection
