Authors: Irma J. Bonvanie, Judith G.M. Rosmalen, Carien M. van Rhede van der Kloot, Albertine J. Oldehinkel, Karin A.M. Janssens

Highlights

  • Perfectionism has been linked to a wide range of problems in adolescents.
  • Yet, the effect of perfectionism on FSSs in adolescents is unknown.
  • We examined whether the feeling one has to be perfect predicted the level of FSSs.
  • Perfectionism predicted the course of FSSs in adolescents.
  • Symptoms of anxiety and depression only partly mediated this effect.
