It’s said that “to err is human”! But making mistakes can also create a lot of anxiety, particularly for teens.
In collaboration with TFO, Les Rendez-vous de la Francophonie presents “Devenez EXPERTS en erreurs!” a presentation for schools featuring Simon Cousineau and Daniel Nadon.
Thanks to TFO, this virtual presentation will be available free from March 1 to 31 on this page. Come back soon!
Virtual presentation overview
Why does Simon Cousineau still find it challenging to manage his performance anxiety and fear of failure even after he starred in a series on the topic? Because managing your emotions and mental health is a lifelong practice, and the first step is talking about it.
The virtual presentation is about 30 minutes long.
A free learning guide is provided and includes all kinds of activities to promote critical thinking and class discussion after students have viewed the presentation.
“I used to think perfectionism was a good thing, but during filming it was really detrimental. All of my insecurities came out. I was worried I wasn’t good enough or funny enough or that I wasn’t expressing myself very well. Even my linguistic insecurities crept up.
It would happen in scenes where they made changes to the script or we had to improvise. I’d often freeze up because I was worried my words wouldn’t come out right”
