A Few of My Favorite Things
Kate F. Hays, Ph.D.
In this webinar, Kate F. Hays, Ph.D. will discuss some of the techniques that she most appreciates in consulting with performers such as athletes, performing artists, and business executives. She applies mental performance techniques derived primarily from the field of applied sport psychology—which itself has adapted CBT, mindfulness, and positive psychology—to her work with performance populations. The similarities and differences in working with different performance populations will be highlighted. Participants will be invited to share their “favorite things” so that a rich dialogue can develop regarding the ways in which people can be supported in changing and becoming their better selves.
