Reducing Test Anxiety: A Right Brain Approach.
Cohen, Ruth I.
Methods of helping students reduce test anxiety are discussed, including guided fantasy which leads students to imagine a setting in which they feel competent and relaxed. Catastrophic-anastrophic expectations teach that different expectations create different feelings and make students aware that they are in charge of their own attitudes. Anxiety is viewed as a breathing difficulty, and various breathing exercises to reduce it are described. A series of relaxation exercises and specific coping techniques are also discussed. Finally, the use of humor is suggested as a way to reduce tension. (NRB)
