Taking advantage of our ever-present inner dialogue, we can help clients alter their self-talk in a way that transforms their relationship with any intimidating performance. By activating “approach” emotions and an opportunity-mindset, clients can decrease fear and improve performance. This protocol eliminates one significant step in the typical treatment process, since it is arousal congruent: clients do not need to shift their anxiety down before they step forward.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the interaction between self-talk and the working memory.  
  2. Identify the benefit of an intervention which is arousal congruent.
  3. Identify three principles of anxiety treatment and an example of their corresponding self-talk.
