iLive: Anxiety and Perfectionism

Thursday, November 5, 2020 - 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Asian American Activities Center

Stressed about online classes and weekly quizzes?

Anxious about what the future will look like for you?

Concerned about family issues and struggles?

Do you feel like your efforts and accomplishments are not good enough?  "Be the best" — as Stanford students, it's a competitive mantra we're constantly told. It may have helped get us here, but believing you have to be the best isn't a healthy pursuit of excellence.

Aiming for excellence should be progressive, not impossible, especially given COVID. Striving for perfection can leave you frustrated, anxious, and overwhelmed. Join us to discuss how to overcome the fear and anxiety caused by perfectionism and compounded by COVID.

Join us to discuss with Dr. Marissa Floro, Program Manager of the Weiland Health Initiative, Sophia Lu, LMFT, Staff Therapist from CAPS, and Dr. Helen Hsu, Staff Psyschologist from CAPS on how to overcome the fear and frustration caused by perfectionism.

The A3C iLive series aims to dispel misconceptions, increase awareness, and encourage dialogue about health and well-being topics relevant to Asian Americans, as well as to introduce students to Stanford resources.

Please RSVP by 11:59pm PST on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
