Perfectionism and ADHD: Making ‘Good Enough’ Work for You
ADDitude Live Webinar with ADHD Expert Dr. Sharon Saline
Register for this FREE expert webinar to learn about how perfectionism takes root in the ADHD brain.
Do you set unrealistic goals and worry about disappointing others? Are your personal expectations based on “shoulds” instead of your known strengths and interests? Does this result in shame and low self-esteem?
These behaviors point to a cycle of perfectionism, an unhealthy insistence on personal flawlessness that increases anxiety and holds you back from the natural process of learning that’s part of daily living. Perfectionism is common among teens and adults with ADHD who struggle with wanting something to be right so much that it becomes difficult to start (and complete) tasks, assignments, and projects. Though perfectionism can be motivating, it can also keep you overfocused on the end result and not the process of getting there.
In this webinar, Dr. Sharon Saline will explain how to stop setting unreasonable standards, engaging in negative comparisons to others, and criticizing yourself for living with ADHD. You will learn how to understand and manage the root causes of perfectionism, examine the role of imposter syndrome, decrease negative self-talk, and increase your capacity for personal compassion. You will understand how to improve executive functioning skills related to procrastination and productivity, stop reflexive shame, and create techniques for managing stress. With these resources, you’ll begin to nurture the essential resilience of a growth mindset and accept yourself as you truly are — perfectly imperfect.
In this free, hour-long webinar, you will learn to:
- Understand the relationship between anxiety, perfectionism, and ADHD
- Improve executive functioning skills related to procrastination and productivity
- Set realistic expectations based on previous successful experiences
