Default Re: Writing and Preparing Inductions

Dear "Listeners",

I am reminded of an article written by Hans Eysenck in 1985 for an edited book of mine on "Individual Differences in Movement". Eysenck had provided a review of empirical studies of the effect of reminiscence in psychomotor studies. One of his anecdotal accounts, had been a reference to the fact that professional athletes (tennis players I think) actually improve their performance during the winter season (when they are training less).

In one of my supervisory groups, several therapists have asked "why is it that on some occasions when we have least prepared for a session, and have to act spontaneously, those sessions are frequently our most creative and productive sessions. We need those intervals, those periods of incubation, of apparently "doing nothing" to facilitate the learning process.
Does that make sense?
Best wishes,
Bruce
