Overview

Gordon L. Flett and Paul L. Hewitt provide an emerging picture of perfectionism that is as timely as it is important. Contributors focus on the maladaptive aspects of perfectionism and explore such questions as: How is perfectionism assessed and conceptualized? How does perfectionism develop? What is the role of emotion, stress, or depression in perfectionism? Why are perfectionists anxious? When is perfectionism irrational?

Leading scholars reveal perfectionism as a personality style with multiple developmental influences that contribute to significant interpersonal problems. Their chapters combine the best current research with insights relevant to the treatment and origins of perfectionism.

Perfectionism will be a welcome resource for researchers, clinicians, counselors, and educators who encounter perfectionists in their work and all others who are interested in learning more about this challenging personality style.

From The Critics
Most of these 16 offerings by PhDs and MDs from the US and Canada focus on perfectionism as maladaptive. Topics include assessing and conceptualizing perfectionism, its development, the role of emotion, perfectionism's irrational and adaptive sides, and its link to stress and interpersonal problems. Case studies reveal a perfectionist husband who batters his wife and says his only mistake was his marriage, perfectionists who view their depression as a flaw and become more depressed, and that perfectionist who became a dandy, a procrastinator, and a superficial conversationalist lest any flaw be detected. Perfectionism can also figure in obsessive compulsive disorder, especially cleaning. The book is geared toward practitioners wanting to decrease perfectionism among clients. Annotation c.
