Description - Performance Addiction by A. Ciaramicoli

How readers can slow down and reduce their perfectionism - the feeling that it's never good enough Why do so many of the most accomplished, successful, and admired people in the world remain unhappy and unfulfilled in spite of their achievements? According to Harvard Medical School instructor Arthur Ciaramicoli, they suffer from Performance Addiction - the belief that perfecting appearance and achieving status will secure the love and respect of others. Using insights gleaned through his research and clinical practice, Dr. Ciaramicoli shows the reasons why the label of "success" so rarely leads to happiness. In this intriguing and prescriptive guide, Ciaramicoli shows the psychological factors that lead to Performance Addiction, gives readers self-evaluation quizzes so they can determine if they have it, and then provides action steps and a prescriptive program to help Performance Addicts achieve happiness and success at home and at work. Arthur Ciaramicoli, PhD, EdD (Hopkinton, MA), is a clinical psychologist and Instructor of Psychology at Harvard Medical School. He has a substantial private practice, does corporate lecturing, and has appeared on The O'Reilly Report as well as numerous national radio programs.
