Description

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.
