About Climbing Psychology
Ever experienced a fear of falling, fear of failure, or any other negative thoughts that distract you from climbing your best? Author Kevin Roet's interest in climbing psychology developed because of direct experience with his own fear of falling. If you would like to push your limits instead of finding a myriad of reasons to say "take", then this book is for you. Rooted in modern psychological concepts like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and current scientific research, the book will help break down your fear response and allow you to shift your focus away from your fear. Kevin runs workshops on climbing psychology and has solicited feedback from students, honing his concepts into a very readable and colorfully illustrated book.
