This event is FULLY BOOKED.

An appreciation of, and screening for a range of mental health conditions is increasingly becoming an important focus for sport and exercise psychologists.

In particular, it is becoming increasingly important that sport and exercise psychologists appreciate the breadth of mental health conditions, screening and assessment practices, potential avenues for treatment, and crucially appropriate avenues for referral.

This event will focus on how psychiatry and clinical psychology engages with sport and exercise, the approaches used, and the interaction with sport and exercise psychologists, and will also explore the role the sport and exercise psychologists should play in developing positive mental health and the training needs of the profession to make a real difference.

This event is free to DSEP members and of particular interest to sport and exercise practitioner psychologists and candidates undertaking stage 2 supervision.

Please see the programme tab for further details.
