Registration launched for International Sport Psychology Congress in Lausanne

The University of Lausanne (UNIL) will be hosting the 6th edition of the International Congress of Sport Psychology from 13 to 15 June 2018. Organised by the French Society of Sport Psychology (FSSP), the event will focus on the impact of sport psychology on physical, sports and artistic activities – in terms of improving individual performance as well as developing the person.

Researchers in sport psychology will be able to present their studies, be it in the form of symposia or oral or displayed communications, in the following three fields:

Improving the performance and developing the person:
(a) Develop and expand the theoretical models
(b) Explore new perspectives
(c) Apply the knowledge to various sports field

Themes which will be covered include talent development; improvement of collective efficiency; improvement of various motor or athletic skills across all age groups; and current possibilities to build good sports practices, i.e. contributing to people’s health, autonomy or even ethics, covering all age groups and performance levels.

Contributions must be submitted before 22 December 2017. Click here for more details.

The Congress will also provide opportunities for sharing innovative ideas and professional experiences in theme-related workshops, specifically tailored to sport psychology practitioners and mental trainers.
