Pre-performance anxiety. Emotional contagion. The car ride home. Perfectionism and burnout. There are many parallels between the world of sport and performing arts. In this talk, Dr. Katherine Tamminen explores psychosocial factors in the development and maintenance of peak performance. Drawing on research in the area of sport psychology, Dr. Tamminen will discuss stress, coping, and emotion regulation among performers, concerns related to perfectionism and burnout at elite levels of performance, as well as ways that important others (parents, coaches, teachers) can support the healthy development of talented performers and artists.

Dr. Katherine Tamminen is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Kinesiology & Physical Education at the University of Toronto and has worked as a consultant with athletes and performers at all levels.

This is the second installment of the Research to Practice (R2P) Talk Series, which is designed for artists as well as those who train and treat them. Through investigations into the mental and physical health of artists, research is linked to practical applications.
