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!
