The popular societal image of a perfectionist (neat,
driven, and well, perfect) is at odds with what
perfectionism can do to a person. Frequently, a
perfectionist can look like a chronically untidy
procrastinator. So, if you consistently set unrealistic
goals and never feel like you're enough, this is the
workshop for you. We'll talk about what perfectionism
really is, how it impacts your life, and ways to finally stop
those negative thought cycles.

I May Destroy You (2020) is an Emmy and Bafta
award-winning HBO/BBC series from writer and
actress Michaela Coel. The series questions sexual
consent in contemporary life. It is both bitingly
hilarious and darkly confronting. As you can
imagine, there are discussions and depictions of
sexual violence. The engagement with these topics
is also coming from a survivor's perspective. It's
also one of the most deeply inclusive works of
television seen in recent years. Each episode is 30
minutes long and will be shown in four episodes in
a sitting, with a brief chat at the end of each

All screenings will be held in AvB 3.16
