So, why bother?First, tackling perfectionism is nothing new. Prior to this program being developed, there have been multiple studies which investigated whether targeting perfectionism can improve mental wellbeing. If you are interested in finding out more about these studies, you can follow these links which summarise the scientific evidence.

Do I really need to do the full program to get the benefits?Some of the researchers behind this program conducted earlier studies which looked at whether completing more sessions of self-guided therapy for perfectionism had an impact on how successful the treatment was. The results? Unsurprisingly the more modules completed, the bigger the reduction in perfectionism scores reported. Not only that, but completing more modules was linked with improvements in mood and body image flexibility whereas completing fewer modules didn’t see these additional improvements. So, the bottom line is: if you want to see results, then you should ideally aim to complete most, if not all, of the eight modules.
