Performance Consulting Skills

Course Description

Students will integrate their theoretical approach to consultation, knowledge of intervention strategies, and personal philosophy of performance enhancement in order to design and present appropriate performance psychology programs. Opportunities to develop both individual and group interventions for diverse populations are provided. An emphasis is placed on the students’ professional development, experience as consultants, learners, and peer mentors, as well as the necessity of reflective practice. This is a 2-month course.
