Many teens and their parents report difficulty navigating perfectionistic tendencies in school and daily life. The pursuit of perfectionism can often lead to debilitating anxiety.

In this workshop we will deepen your understanding of perfectionism as a mindset and learn simple, effective and actionable strategies to move a teen’s mindset from inner critic to inner coach. We will learn how to cultivate a growth identity by understanding the research about Growth Mindset, mindset management tools that are easy to understand and put directly into practice as well as a concrete practice plan to build awareness and behavior change momentum.
