A Roundtable Discussion led by Brandon Tessers

Procrastination and Perfectionism: 

Two Sides of the Same Anxious Coin

 Oak Park, IL

There are few things more frustrating and painful than watching our gifted children struggle with perfectionism or procrastination, knowing they are not executing at the level of which they are capable. The good news is that these behaviors are not ingrained. In fact, they are symptoms of something else. Something that can improve. In this presentation, a counselor who specializes in working with gifted children will explore the underlying, root causes of perfectionism and procrastination and their relationship to anxiety, skill gaps, and asynchrony. Attendees will learn strategies to use in helping gifted children overcome these harmful behaviors.

Brandon Tessers is a Marriage and Family Counselor at the Center for Identity Potential in Park Ridge, IL. He has worked with teens, young adults, and their families for over 10 years as an educator and counselor. He has particular expertise in working with individuals and families struggling with issues related to technology and video games, and specializes in working with gifted individuals, artists, and atypical learners.
