Self Liberation from Test Anxiety

Wallace Sife
Self Liberation from Test Anxiety Drawing on his years as an English teacher in New York City and his own struggles recovering from a severe concussion, Dr. Wallace Sife developed what he termed “transcognitive educational psychology.” In this 1980 self-help album, Sife offers guidance for those dealing with test-taking anxiety. On track 1(Side I), Sife outlines the process by which test anxiety typically unfolds, and his own approach to remedying it. This includes a series of techniques for effective studying. On track 2 (Side II), Sife leads listeners through guided meditation exercises aimed at using relaxation and positive self-suggestion to relieve individuals of the physical effects of anxiety on exam day.
