*** Please note: this discussion will be held in Dutch ***

In these times, where any thing is possible and perfectionism predominates, how does one deal with adversity? Are our expectations simply too high? For this discussion, psychiatrist Professor Damiaan Denys (UvA) pays tribute to failure, psychologist Marijntje Zeijen (UU) analyses the desire to perform and developmental psychologist Doctor Odilia Laceulle (UU) explains how our personalities and our circumstances come together to make us who we are, all accompanied by musician Cézanne.
