Perfectionism (Personality trait);
The construct of perfectionism is an important one for today's counselor. Perfectionism has been associated with a wide variety of psychopathologies, including anxiety (Flett, Hewitt, & Dyck, 1989), depression (Hewitt & Flett, 1990), and personality disorders (Broday, 1988; Hewitt & Flett, 1991 b). A number of theorists have connected perfectionism with unhealthy or pathological symptomatology (e.g. Adler, 1956; Burns, 1980b; Horney, 1950). Recently, however, perfectionism has been associated with both healthy and unhealthy characteristics (Slaney & Ashby, in press). Slaney, Ashby, and Trippi (in press) suggested that the component of high personal standards appeared to be an important aspect of the definition of perfectionism, but not always problematic.
