This workshop teaches an approach to working with athletes and performing artists that helps them to learn how they can perform well even though they are nervous, afraid of failing, or self-doubting. In this model, individuals are taught to identify and then compensate for the spe- cific way in which their unadulterated mental state affects their performance. In addition, therapists are encouraged to humanize the com- petitive experience for clients, and relieve them of the disappointment they often feel toward themselves for not being better able to call up the "right" thoughts and feelings on demand.
