Controlling Speech Anxiety: Academic Recommendations and Forensic Applications.
Sellnow, Timothy L.; And Others
A study examined whether published texts and studies being used in the speech communication classroom adequately address the needs of students when they go into the laboratory setting of forensic tournaments. Published studies in speech communication, selected textbooks used in the basic speech course, and selected studies and textbooks in forensics were reviewed. Results indicated that: (1) the communication education literature does little to provide insight on the impact of the competitive setting on speech anxiety; (2) the recommendations for controlling speech anxiety found in most of the selected textbooks (positive mental attitude, eating a balanced diet, abstaining from drug usage) apply to the forensic context; and (3) forensics textbooks and studies have not specifically addressed the topic of controlling speech anxiety. (Two tables of data are included; 43 references are attached.) (RS)
