Performance anxiety affects the vast majority of us either in a way that impacts our thoughts, behaviour, emotions, or bodily sensations. In this presentation, you can expect to learn how to monitor these symptoms, label what your concerns are, learn some intro strategies to change, and begin to develop a tool box for future contests. 

Dr. Carole Smith
