How can it be that so many clever, competent and capable people can feel that they are just one step away from being exposed as a complete fraud? Come along and hear what the latest psychological research has to tell us about ‘The Imposter Syndrome’ and, more importantly, some strategies for dealing with it. The session will explain why high performing people often doubt their abilities and find it hard to enjoy their successes. It will also show the links to perfectionism and self-handicapping strategies such as procrastination, avoidance and over commitment. At the end of this session you will:

* know what the latest psychological research tells us about the imposter syndrome and how it operates
* realise how widespread imposter feelings are and why highly successful people can feel like frauds
* be aware of evidence-based strategies that reduce imposter feelings

Please note that this workshop expands upon a subject covered briefly in ‘Seven Secrets of Successful Researchers’.
