About the Author:

Kate F. Hays, PhD, maintains an independent practice, The Performing Edge, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, with a specialized focus on performance enhancement for athletes, performing artists, and businesspeople. She earned her master's and doctorate from Boston University in 1971. In New Hampshire following her graduate training, she directed a community mental health center and subsequently developed an individual and group private practice.

Her research, writing, teaching, and practice, both in New Hampshire and, since 1997, in Toronto, has been directed toward the mental benefits of physical activity and the application of sport psychology techniques to other performance populations as well as athletes.

Dr. Hays is the author of Working It Out: Using Exercise in Psychotherapy; Move Your Body, Tone Your Mood; and (with co-author Charles H. Brown) You're On! Consulting for Peak Performance; and edited Integrating Exercise, Sports, Movement and Mind: Therapeutic Unity.

A former president of American Psychological Association's Division of Exercise and Sport Psychology, she is the recipient of its Bruce Ogilvie Award for Professional Practice.
