Strategies for harnessing mindfulness in the midst of extreme mental pressure are a must for athletes aiming to take control of their game. No one knows this better than Ken Ravizza, Ph.D., world-renowned pioneer in the field of athletic mental performance and the Sport Psychology program’s Professional Development Seminar speaker for the quarter. Attend this seminar to learn more about the field or how to up your mental game in any part of your life that demands you to perform.

When it comes to outward achievement, the inner playing field must also be addressed. Invoking the ancient Greek athletic tradition, Ravizza leads his athletes to “stand naked before the gods,” to develop a mental toughness that helps them stay in the moment when the pressure is on and there are no second chances. Throughout the course of his nearly 40-year career as a kinesiology professor at Cal State Fullerton, Ravizza helped scores of athletes hone their mental poise and move creatively through mental blocks. Author of “Heads-up Baseball: Playing the Game One Pitch at a Time,” Ravizza is also revered in the professional sphere, where he has worked with the L.A. Angels, New York Jets, Tampa Bay Rays, and various Olympians.

This seminar will combine lecture, discussion, and applied practice in the areas of stress management, mental skills training, and coping strategies for athletes of all stripe. Ravizza’s insights and techniques are also applicable beyond the traditional playing field, and have been utilized by all manner of “players” who need to be at their best under pressure, including heart surgeons, musicians, and military cadets. What’s your game? Come join us to explore new ways to approach it at your very best!
