MCGT Facebook Live CHAT: Perfectionism: What It Is, and How To Help

Tuesday, April 14, 7-7:30pm on the Minnesota Council for Gifted and Talented (MCGT) Facebook page

Presenter: Tom Greenspon, Ph.D

This Chat will be pre-recorded. Please feel free to ask questions in the comments and we’ll have Dr. Greenspon answer in upcoming days.

How do we encourage kids to “be all they can be,” without creating perfectionists?  Pursuing excellence, while leaving behind perfectionism’s destructive anxiety, begins with an understanding of the psychology of perfectionism. Learn how to use this understanding to create perfectionism’s antidote.

Join Dr. Thomas Greenspon, author of Moving Past Perfect and When Good Enough isn’t Good Enough, for a discussion of perfectionism at a time when uncertainty is our norm. 

Thomas S. Greenspon, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist and licensed marriage and family therapist in private practice. He earned his B.A. from Yale and his Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Illinois. Tom lectures and writes on a variety of topics including perfectionism and the emotional needs of gifted children and adults.

Mark your calendars for our Facebook Live CHAT (Connect, Help, Advocate, Talk) – Tuesdays, 7-7:30 p.m. on the Minnesota Council for Gifted and Talented (MCGT) Facebook page
