Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required by performers to evaluate behavioural principles to develop strategies that help cope with performance anxiety and other aspects of working in a competitive environment. In a highly competitive market, performers have to apply a range of psychological techniques to perform with the skill and artistry needed to further their careers.

Developing strategies to resolve performance issues is a largely self-directed activity, but may involve some mentored guidance.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

1.3 Clarify the basic influences on social, individual and group behaviour with particular reference to competitive environments

1.4 Ensure correct use of terminology associated with psychological research and behavioural theories

2. Develop strategies to overcome performance anxiety as required

2.1 Identify causes and effects of performance anxiety

2.2 Discuss with relevant personnel the positive and negative effects of physiological arousal on performance

2.3 In consultation with relevant personnel, develop strategies to cope with performance anxiety and achieve optimal arousal

2.4 Use rehearsal and performance opportunities to test and evaluate strategies

2.5 Reflect on own experience of, and responses to, a range of coping mechanisms and adjust strategies accordingly

3. Develop strategies to cope with injuries

3.1 Identify the psychological effect of injuries on performers

3.2 Recognise the signs of problematic adjustment to injury in self and in other performers

3.3 Apply techniques to minimise the risk of injuries

3.4 Ensure that strategies to manage injuries take account of individual differences in response to injury

4. Develop strategies to enhance performance

4.1 Discuss with relevant personnel strategies and psychological tools to enhance resilience and improve performance technique

4.2 Incorporate into performance strategies understanding of the physical effects of motivation on the human body

4.3 Apply the principles of visualisation to improve motivation and performance
