Join us for our alumni event as we explore applied sport psychology with Dr John Kremer.
To put it mildly, applied sport psychology has something of a chequered history. From the time of the Ancient Greeks, psychological support has been on offer in various guises - but good theory and good practice have not always gone hand in hand.
This online alumni event will take a look at the current state of applied sport psychology and consider ways to ensure that the services on offer are genuine and that athletes are given an opportunity to help explore their true sporting potential.
We invite our alumni to register for the event by sending an email to DARO (email@example.com) with the title “Kremer Lecture” and their details. DARO will then issue you with the Teams link. We look forward to joining you on 24 March 2021.
