North East & North West of England Branch Conference 2012

The North East Of England Branch presents its Fifth Annual Conference in collaboration with the North West Branch.

“Back to the Future: Reflections and Implications Following the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games”

Exploring Sports in the North of England 
The North East and North West Branches of the British Psychological Society are joining forces to present research on all things sport at the Ethiad Stadium, Manchester on the 16th November 2012. In this Olympic year, the event, occurring after the London Games, will take a reflective stance on sports psychology, as well as explore its future.
The past conferences held in the North East have been well received by their delegates, with the 2012 conference aiming to continue this tradition. As such, the conference will be very interactive to allow opportunities to discuss the research being presented, to learn, to make research connections, and to network over the course of the day.

We are also offering a complimentary Stadium Tour for delegates wishing to further explore this state of the art football ground.
