Anxiety seems particularly prevalent for those in the performance industries.  In the part three of this series on anxiety, Dr Julie Crabtree will explore the concept of catastrophic thinking as a cause of anxiety for the creative mind.  She will explore the ways in which we can turn musings of the future into what is real in the now, as well as demonstrating tools of how to reduce the severity of anxiety caused by catastrophic thinking. Please note: that this pre-recorded session will be available via YouTube and Facebook at 10.30am  and 7pm AEDT on November 26. After registering you'll be sent a link to tune in. This event is part of the Equity Health & Wellness Series, supported by the Actors Benevolent Fund of NSW.
