Mental skills training is new online summer course
Posted on 5/16/2011
Mental Skills Training for Performance Excellence is a new Bismarck State College online summer course designed to help individuals improve their personal performance, whether they are athletes, coaches, performers or presenters. The four-week psychology course begins June 6 and covers inner drive, emotion and mental control, interactive skills, and potential pitfalls.
Using specific mental training tools, students will learn how to develop mental toughness and resilience when practicing, competing, presenting or performing in athletics, on stage, in the classroom, in business, and in life.
The two-credit class would be helpful to athletes or performers wanting to improve their own performance, to coaches desiring to improve their athletes or team, and to other individuals who want to improve their performance in life, said Nita Wirtz, BSC assistant professor of psychology and course instructor.
Other summer session courses are scheduled in English, Spanish, intermediate and college algebra, history, philosophy, sociology, psychology, human services, criminal justice, biology, computer science, geographic information systems, and more.
