Dare to speak

Talking in front of others, giving speeches, presenting group work, or being active at seminars can make many of us very anxious. It can be so difficult that you get physical symptoms and it can be hard to maintain your studies.

In your studies, there may be several compulsory elements, such as seminars or examinations, where you have to stand in front of a group and give some kind of presentation. If you have speech anxiety, this, or even having to participate in seminars and voice your opinion, will be very difficult.

Join this lecture to gain knowledge about what happens in the body and mind when the pressure to perform strikes, along with strategies to cope.

Join the lecture through Zoom. No sign up necessary.
