When Perfectionism Erodes Vision: Understanding & Embracing True Growth

November 29, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Discuss issues like over-responsibility, perfectionism, impostor syndrome and burnout with the goal of putting you back in control of YOU

Are you burnt out from being responsible for everyone and everything? Are you feeling out of control in multiple facets of life? Then this webinar is for you. In this 90-minute session, licensed therapist Montina Myers-Galloway will address two types of trauma that impact far too many Black women – parentification (reversal of roles between parents and children) and adultification (a form of bias perceiving children to be older/mature than they are). These traumas are significant obstacles to growth and development, often leading to unsustainable performative and perfectionistic behavior.

Montina will take you to the core of issues like over-responsibility, perfectionism, impostor syndrome, and burn-out, with the goal of putting you back in control of your life – both personally and professionally. She will also address common fears that Black women have when it comes to addressing their own growth.
