Chang, Edward C.; Rand, Kevin L.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v47 n1 p129-137 Jan 2000
Relations among perfectionism, stress, subsequent psychological symptoms, and hopelessness were examined among college students. Results indicated that socially prescribed perfectionism was a significant predictor of psychological symptoms and hopelessness. Results provide support for a specific diathesis stress mechanism and important implications for developing specific interventions in working perfectionistic college students. (Author/JDM)
