The Challenge of Performing Under Stress

Professor Marc Jones will draw on his extensive research and applied experience to discuss how psychological and physiological responses to stress relate to performance in sport settings. He will outline how a positive (challenge) response to stress differs from a less helpful (at least in performance terms) response to stress (threat). Building on this research Marc will outlines strategies for developing a a challenge state in athletes. This webinar will be of interest to sport psychologists, coaches and athletes with a fascination for understanding sports performance under stress.
