Despite research documenting a relationship between social anxiety and perfectionism, very little research has examined the relationship between social anxiety and clinical perfectionism, defined as the combination of high personal standards and high maladaptive perfectionistic evaluative concern. In the current studies we examined whether clinical perfectionism predicted social anxiety in a large sample of undergraduates.
This is a research intensive course. The material is dense and technical.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Perception Matters for Clinical Perfectionism and Social Anxiety created by Cheri A. Levinson, Thomas L. Rodebaugh, PhD. MA, and Cortney Warren, PhD. in 2016.
Journal of Anxiety Disorders 2016
