**Please note that this is a 2-session workshop and will be held November 9 and 16 at 1:30 p.m.**

Many students are told that perfectionism is a good thing and necessary for success. However, studies show that perfectionistic attitudes can interfere with success. The desire to be perfect can both rob you of a sense of personal satisfaction and cause you to fail to achieve as much as people with more realistic expectations. This two-part program helps students realize when perfectionism is more harmful than good and develop more realistic expectations.  

This program is open to all Illinois students—you do not need to be a current client of the Counseling Center. We do strongly encourage you to be available to attend both sessions. Please call the Counseling Center at 217-333-3704 with any questions.
