The Performing Edge


Mental Performance Consulting (also known as Performance Enhancement Training, Psychological Skills Training [PST], or Mental Skills Training [MST]) refers to the ways in which people's performance can be improved via mental or psychological methods. For many years, these methods have been developed for use with athletes. More recently, some of the same methods have been applied to other areas of performance, especially the performing arts and the field of business.

For Mental Performance Professionals and Advanced Graduate Students in these fields, (psychologists and other mental health practitioners; sport psychologists), The Performing Edge has:

  • Tele-Consultation Groups (TCGs) on Sport Psychology and Performance Psychology. Organized annually, TCGs include monthly distance (phone or video) small group meetings designed for learning, processing, and networking. Different configurations include combination of shared readings, case or programmatic consultation, and practice development.
  • Dr. Hays also offers individual consultation and mentoring to mental health and sport psychology professionals and advanced graduate students.
