About this title

Synopsis:

T his book is for all people who dread speaking in public--the lawyer too anxiety-ridden to plead his case, the young professional afraid to present her project, the salesperson who has to take a drink before making a sales pitch. It is about performance anxiety, which affects millions of people in business, professional, and personal situations. Because of their overwhelming fear at even the prospect of being the center of attention, these people are forced into choices that seriously limit their social lives, careers, and the development of their talents.

As an outgrowth of her earlier training as an actress and her own struggle with this problem, Jungian analyst Joyce Ashley has developed a method for identifying the roots of performance anxiety and the psychological factors that continue to fuel it. Using a combination of acting and psychoanalytic techniques, she teaches people to do battle with their inner saboteurs.

In Part I, Ashley takes us step-by-step through the experiences of two participants in her eight-week workshop. Using actual dialogues, we follow each one's encounters with inner adversaries and witness their newly gained insights and growing freedom from fear.

In Part II, Ashley adapts her highly successful workshop program for the reader. She explains in detail how to do her exercises, and supports each reader's individual journey toward confrontation with self-sabotage.
Unlike other books that give advice on how to deal with performance anxiety, Ashley's is the first to offer a reliable, easily learned technique that empowers readers to overcome their fear.

About the Author:

Joyce Ashley is a Jungian analyst who specializes in performance anxiety. In addition to her analytic practice, she conducts workshops on Overcoming Stage Fright in Everyday Life at the New York Open Center and in Jungian centers across the country.
