During the lunch period, law students of all years are invited to meet Andrea Falco, Student Wellbeing Counsellor for activities and resources to help promote the monthly wellbeing focus in their lives.
We live in a culture that emphasizes being perfect as a virtue in everything from body image to relationships to career achievements. The problem is that life and being human, in spite of our best efforts, is messier than this. Having high standards is one thing, but taking a perfectionistic approach to life can actually get in the way of your success.
Striving for perfect often involves chronically doubting or second-guessing yourself, being relentlessly hard on yourself (or others), and never feeling like you quite "make it." This can translate into chronic procrastination, late assignments, strain on peer and supervisory relationships, and never feeling like you are "good enough."
This workshop will introduce participants to some of the concepts that drive perfectionism so that they may have a better understanding of what is going on as well as provide strategies to manage the challenging parts that arise.
Special guest Becky Rock will discuss her experiences and strategies used to overcome perfectionist tendencies as a student and legal professional.
Please feel welcomed to bring your lunch to the event. Fruit, veggies, popcorn, and chocolate will be provided for some light snacks!
