Audiobook - Learn to Concentrate
Author: Professor Aidan Moran
In this audio presentation you will learn how to improve your concentration skills. You will be taught techniques which will enable you to focus on what is most important in any situation while ignoring distractions.
 Concentration is a practical skill which can enrich our lives considerably. Unfortunately, most of us are probably more familiar with losing our concentration than with effective “focusing” ability.
This recording will explore concentration in three stages. Firstly, it will explain what concentration is, show you how it’s influenced by your attitudes and emotions, and give you some practical tips to improve your listening and reading skills. Secondly, it will help you to analyse and deal with common distractions in your life. Finally, it will present some practical “focusing” strategies which will help you to improve your concentration in a variety of daily situations.
This audio presentation features Professor Aidan Moran who is a Professor of Cognitive Psychology and Director of the Psychology Research Laboratory in University College, Dublin. Aidan is an expert in the use of psychological techniques which can improve people’s concentration and performance in academic and sporting situations. It is narrated by Emma Thurston and Professor Aidan Moran.
