Joachim Stoeber

Dr. Joachim Stoeber is a Professor of Psychology at the University of Kent. With a background in individual differences and personality, his focus of the past fifteen years has been perfectionism research demonstrating that perfectionism is not an exclusively maladaptive characteristic, but has aspects that can be adaptive. Dr. Stoeber has published numerous journal articles and book chapters on the topic and is one of the leading experts on perfectionism.

This milestone textbook “The Psychology of Perfectionism: Theory, Research, Applications” provides a comprehensive and state-of-the art overview of perfectionism research, research, and treatment from the past 25 years, with contributions from the leading researchers in the field.

The etextbook examines new theories and perspectives including the social disconnection model of perfectionism and the 2 × 2 model of perfectionism. It also reviews empirical findings, with a special focus on vulnerability, stress, and resilience, and examines perfectionism in specific populations. Finally, it considers how perfectionism relates to physical health and psychophysiological processes and introduces new approaches to effective treatment and prevention.

By increasing our understanding of perfectionism as a complex personality disposition and providing a framework for future explorations, this landmark publication aims to promote further research in this field. It will be invaluable reading for college students, academics, and professionals in personality clinical and counseling psychology, applied psychology, psychology, and related disciplines.
