Workshop Description:

A full day of workshops is planned to bring together multiple disciplines in the area of sport and exercise psychology for the purpose of gaining practical and experiential knowledge from expert sport psychology professionals in three topical issues in sport. The tools covered in these workshops are aimed towards facilitating the development and optimization of performance, well-being, and personal growth in sport participants. The first workshop will explore the role of the psychology professional in the health team and detail recommendations for evaluation and management of sport-related concussions. The second will explore sport psychology work and consultation specific to helping the sport family through applied case studies. The day will conclude with a workshop focusing on the application of bio- and neurofeedback tools in sport and exercise psychology for optimal performance and well-being. Specifically, this last workshop will provide a demonstration of the training protocols used in this area and examine several case studies with applications to Olympic athletes and coaches, in order to illustrate how to integrate bio- and neurofeedback into an existing professional practice.
