This article describes the use of biofeedback interventions with PGA golfers, professional baseball players, and college athletes. The author advocates applying the optimal performance framework beyond the field of sport, to high performers in other areas, including business and medicine. Physicians are in many ways athletes and peak performers, and the outcome of their performance is life or death, recovery or disability. Physicians rarely participate in conventional employee assistance programs or stress debriefing, and would benefit from a wider application of a peak performance approach to their optimal wellness for themselves and their families.
