Flipping Fear: What to do When “Just Do It!” Doesn’t Work
Region 7 Friday Athlete Wellness
Presenter(s): Sara Sadler
Session Summary

We all know a gymnast (or many!) who struggle with a mental block. You’ve likely tried everything possible to help this gymnast overcome their fear, but nothing seems to be working—it is an incredibly frustrating process for both the gymnast and the coach. Why don’t the traditional approaches always work? What if there were a different way? In this workshop, we will learn acceptance and commitment-based strategies to help gymnasts work through mental blocks in a new, exciting way. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to describe how fear operates; explain why acceptance and commitment strategies are helpful tools for overcoming mental blocks; and apply acceptance and commitment strategies to their work with gymnasts experiencing mental blocks.
