The psychology of preparing for the (delayed) Olympic Games

Competing in the Olympic Games perhaps represents the pinnacle of any athlete’s career, involving years of physical and mental training. What happens when life throws a curveball and the Olympics are postponed? Jonathan Smith will explore how psychology is being used to enable Paralympic GB athletes and staff to thrive in Tokyo in a fascinating session uncovering how the mind works and how this knowledge is applied to sports psychology.

Jonathan is a sports psychologist working with Paralympic GB, England’s Women’s Rugby, the FA and Formula 1 drivers, using psychological principles to enable athletes to thrive. Join Jonathan at Psychology in Action this autumn in London or at Warwick University!
