Our guest, Dr. Ryan Pittsinger, brings experience from all over the country studying counseling and sports psychology to focus on working with collegiate athletes to improve their quality of life and athletic performance.
In today’s podcast, Dr. Pittsinger shares his field expertise over mental health topics that are more frequent among students. Topics include performance stress and anxiety created by expectations from the athlete, coaches, and peers; balancing school and sport; and the pressures student-athletes face from social media. Dr. Pittsinger also dives into how student populations as a whole can relieve mental stress, and even provides strategies for parents to help their kids facing student-athlete pressures.
