The "Four Leg Approach" in Working with Elite Performers:
Applying Sports & Performance Psychology to Clinical Practice

October 18, 2019

Part I - 10 am - 11 am
Part II - 11 am - 12 pm

Dr. Christina Heilman – Instructor


Our society marvels at peak performances. We are often amazed at athletes’ physical prowess and mental strength when they stretch their limits or how firefighters, surgeons or military personal have the ability to perform under intense pressure. What's often overlooked in these situations is that peak performances are a result of consistent, systematic training of the "whole" person and not some innate quality an elite performer is born with. Each of us has the capability to strengthen our mind, body, heart and soul to live and perform at an extraordinary level. This webinar presents an integrated and holistic approach for optimizing health and human performance by melding ancestral wisdom with modern science that practitioners can use on the field, in the operating room, or during a therapy session.

Learning Objectives:

After attending Part I attendees will be able to:

  • Define Sport and Performance Psychology
  • Identify how ancient wisdom informs modern science and vice versa
  • Introduce and apply a simple map of the four-leg approach to peak performance: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual
  • Differentiate between techniques such as imagery, breathing, and body movement and demonstrate how to apply these tools to integrate the mind, body and soul and reach optimal states of performance


We will apply the four-leg approach in reaching peak performance to top performers, such as physicians and elite athletes. Case questions from the participants will help deepen our understanding on how to empower people to excel. The cases presented provide an opportunity to use science-based strategies as well as time honored traditions to boost performance and balance one’s life.

Learning Objectives:

After attending Part II attendees will be able to:

  • Describe an integrated and holistic system of care to reach a higher level of health, happiness and human potential
  • Develop real-world strategies to work effectively with high performers which can also be applied to other populations
  • Apply the four-leg approach utilizing the science, sacred wisdom, and clinical skills to case studies presented by Dr. Heilman and by participants
