Clinical Focus Webinar – 17th November 2023

17 November, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm AEDT

‘Perfectionism: An Integrated Conceptual Model’


Eileen Seah
Clinical Psychologist

About this webinar:
Perfectionism can be a difficult issue in therapy, both in terms of its intransigence and its effect on the treatment process; and exacerbated by how perfectionism has been shown in research to be increasing over time. It is now generally agreed upon by researchers and clinicians that perfectionism is a multidimensional construct—posited as a transdiagnostic process underlying many disorders. In this webinar, Eileen will present an integrated conceptual model focused on signature features/expressions of multidimensional perfectionism. The model is drawn from several theoretical models of perfectionism and therapeutic modalities, as well as informed by her own clinical practice. The webinar aims to offer a more integrated approach for practitioners to bridge different therapeutic approaches; to formulate and customise treatment to their client’s context and presentation.
About the presenter: Eileen Seah is a clinical psychologist with extensive experience in the treatment of anxiety and perfectionism. She is a PhD candidate at the University of Sydney investigating multidimensional perfectionism and the self, namely self-criticism, self-compassion and self-concept clarity. She applies an integrated approach in her clinical work by drawing from several therapeutic modalities such as cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, schema therapy, compassion-focused therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, and EMDR, amongst others. She has worked in diverse therapy settings such as Macquarie University’s Centre for Emotional Health, counselling services at several universities, outpatient and inpatient hospital units, and in private practice. Eileen provides supervision to practitioners working with adult clients whose lives are negatively impacted by unrelenting standards and maladaptive perfectionism, as well as other clinical and professional issues.
