PSYCHOLOGICAL RESOURCE ASSOCIATES
One of the critical issues affecting a child growing up is Performance Anxiety. Indeed, many children drop on intellectual waste piles because they can not cope with the pressure.
What is Performance Anxiety? It is derived of two components; A worrying component and an emotional component.
The worry component involves the child self-criticizing, imaging, actually rehearsing scenes of failure. "I'll never pass that test." "I'll never make friends." The emotional component involves sweaty palms, rapid heart rate and butterflies in the stomach.
Children with Performance Anxiety need not suffer in silence. There are excellent techniques to help overcome these problems. The child can obtain a feeling of confidence and adjustment to school and his peers with the proper treatment plan.
