We all want to “live our best life,” but too often our drive toward excellence morphs into a quest for the impossible—perfection. Dr. Jeffrey S. Reber, author of, The Paradox of Perfection: How Embracing Our Imperfection Perfects Us unpacks the many layers of perfectionism—where it comes from, why we struggle with it, and how it alienates us from each other and ourselves! We delve into:
•Perfectionism in the age of social media.
•Vulnerability and perfectionism.
•The most powerful aspect of psychotherapy—and how it relates to perfectionism.
•The “deep shame” that keeps so many of us trapped in the pursuit of flawlessness.
•How perfectionism in marriage prevents true intimacy.
•Perfectionism in the age of the “gotcha culture.”
Join us to discuss the paradox of perfection—how embracing our imperfections allows us to live lives of vulnerability, authenticity, and deep intimacy.
