6.12.22 - Perfectionism, how (not) to be perfect?

Marjolijn Van Den Berg & Kim Adant, psychologists Wellbeing VUB staff, BRUCC 

Perfectionism, a beautiful quality that can quickly become a pitfall. In this lecture we will explain what it means exactly, how you can recognize it, what a healthy way is to deal with it and how you can apply that information about perfectionism in the workplace. We like to keep it interactive and certainly give the opportunity to ask questions.

This lecture will take place at the VUB campus Etterbeek. If preferred, you can also follow live via streaming. The video of this lecture will be made available later via the VUB LRN platform.

14.3.23 - Coping with worrying: an active approach

Kim Adant, clinical psychologist Welbeing VUB staff & Lili Meijer clinical psychologist i.t., BRUCC 

Worrying is a habit we are all guilty of. Often, we are also convinced that worrying brings us closer to solving our problems. Yet we often find that brooding is also difficult, especially when we want to de-connect from work or try to catch sleep at night. Sometimes these thoughts are also accompanied by anxious or depressed feelings. So why is it that we do this so often? What exactly can we mean by 'worrying'? And can we get rid of this habit? 

In this lecture on worrying, we will not only focus on answering the above questions, but we will also provide some concrete tools to deal with worrying in everyday life'.
