The Psychology Department Speakers Series will hold its final session from 1-2:30 p.m. April 3, 2013, in the ATC. Dr. Edmund O’Conner will present “Mental Toughness: The X-Factor in Sport and Life.”
In this applied and practical session, attendees will develop the psychological edge to be better and more consistent than their opponents in remaining determined, focused, confident and in-control under pressure. While sport is emphasized, the skills covered — focus, centering and rebounding from mistakes — apply in all areas of performance. Attendees will leave the session with techniques they can apply immediately to maximize their potential and excel.
Dr. O’Connor is a Fellow and Certified Consultant through the Association for Applied Sport Psychology, practicing at the Performance Excellence Center at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital.
