Sitler Publishes on Perfectionism in High-Achieving Students

Helen Sitler's article “Perfect” appears in the Winter 2011–2012 issue of the Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning.

Through a case study, the article highlights how perfectionism can be a form of trauma that composition instructors should be aware of in some high-achieving students.

Perfectionism is a common issue dealt with at college counseling centers. Such students are often a joy to teach, while their instructors do not recognize the toll that perfectionism is taking on the student.
