“Clinical perfectionism” is a highly specific construct; at its heart is the overevaluation of achievement and striving that causes significant adverse consequences. Clinical perfectionism is associated with a range of mental health disorders including depression, anxiety, OCD and eating disorders. A specific cognitive-behavioural intervention (CBT-P) has been developed by Roz Shafran and the Oxford Eating Disorders Research Group, and enhanced by clinical research groups led by Tracey Wade and Sarah Egan in Australia. CBT-P is a brief intervention that can be delivered in a range of formats. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses indicate that the intervention is effective in reducing perfectionism as well as associated psychopathology such as anxiety, depression and eating disorders.





The workshop will describe the cognitive-behavioural theory and therapy for clinical perfectionism. It will begin by placing the theory in the context of the broader literature on perfectionism, and the evidence in support of the CBT-P approach. The workshop will focus on the assessment and therapeutic techniques contained within the intervention. It will also include information about its structure and the therapeutic processes involved in delivery.


Learning objectives


  • To be aware of the relevant research literature and current evidence-base for the intervention
  • To understand a cognitive-behavioural analysis of clinical perfectionism and the factors that contribute to maintenance of psychopathology
  • To learn how to assess clinical perfectionism and determine when it may warrant a specific intervention
  • To be familiar with the cognitive-behavioural strategies used to address clinical perfectionism
