    Life Performance for Students: Creating Your Best College Experience guides students through the process of setting academic and life goals and then building the skills, personal knowledge, and optimal mind frame to achieve those goals. The text features neuroscience and psychology research to help students better understand the natural biological and psychological barriers to success. Building upon this scientific knowledge, the book features effective and sustainable interventions that improve individual performance.

    Initial chapters challenge students to set large educational goals and identify the new study habits and personal living choices required to attain those goals. In following chapters, the book uses neuroscience and psychology findings to explain why they are likely to resist these new behaviors in favor of more comfortable, longstanding but less effective old habits. The final section provides students with a proven, interactive mental strength training program that helps them cultivate optimal conditions for the creation of the new thoughts and behaviors required for high levels of academic performance and life quality.

    Designed to help students transition into college and achieve long-lasting personal success, Life Performance for Students is ideal for courses in college success and freshman orientation. It can also be used in courses which focus on performance psychology for music or sports psychology.

    Stephen Curtis, Ph.D., HSPP, is a neuroscience-trained clinical psychologist with 30 years of experience helping patients, groups, organizations, and companies create change, improve skills, achieve higher levels of success, and understand and overcome the natural resistance to change. He has contributed book chapters on the topics of recovery after brain damage and performance psychology. Dr. Curtis is using fMRI, EEG, and brain perfusion methods to examine the brain bases for both resistance to new behaviors and the role of anxiety and stress in that resistance.
