This workshop introduces new techniques for reducing performance anxiety and installing peak performance “scripts” that can be drawn upon in performance. Participants learn about the psychology of performance through traditional sport psychology methods in combination with new brain-based techniques which are taught and demonstrated. Lecture, video clips, guided visualizations and live demos show how performance can be improved. Elements of flow state are identified for incorporation into each participants’ performance plan.
Upon registration, participants will be emailed a 50 page workbook that includes self-assessments to be filled out before the workshop. Live demos will be offered if volunteers step forward.
Dr. Patrick Gannon is a clinical and performance psychologist in SF who works with singers, musicians, athletes and public speakers on performance anxiety and peak performance issues. He has presented his research and workshops in SF, Santa Clara, Portland and Colorado.
