Description

This is one of the first books to describe the emerging practice of 'performance psychology'. The field applies the same mental skills that were once taught only to expert athletes, but are now being taught to a broad range of 'performers' - including actors and dancers, lawyers, surgeons, business leaders, rescue workers and others in high-risk occupations. This title applies research and practice from many fields, including sport psychology, psychotherapy, industrial-organizational practice, and executive coaching. It blends theory and practice by integrating literature reviews with real-world applications - for a broad range of clients. It provides extensive session transcripts, including consultants' thoughts and reactions throughout each session.
