The Division of Sport and Exercise Psychology promotes the professional interests of sport and exercise psychologists in the UK and aims to support the development of psychology both as a profession and as a body of knowledge and skills.
The Division of Sport and Exercise Psychology (DSEP) promotes the professional interests of sport and exercise psychologists, and seeks to develop an active community of individuals and groups interested in sport and exercise psychology.
These groups range from HCPC registered sport and exercise psychologists, university lecturers, researchers, students and trainee sport and exercise psychologists to coaches, teachers, athletes, and anyone with an interest in sport and exercise psychology.
We seek to promote the development and sharing of knowledge, experience and expertise through a range of different forums including:
- Applied Hubs
- DSEP Annual conference
- DSEP Division days
- Research Working Groups
- Sport and Exercise Psychology Review (SEPR)
The Division of Sport and Exercise Psychology Committee works on behalf of the Division membership to increase awareness and understanding of the field of sport and exercise psychology, and the profession of sport and exercise psychologists.
Applied HubsShow content
Applied hubs are DSEP supported communities that seek to provide opportunities for communication, networking, and the sharing of experiences for anyone interested in sport and exercise psychology applied practice, and in particular for Stage 2 candidates and their supervisors.
The Hubs provide further training opportunities, an environment in which the challenges of applied practice can be shared and discussed, and the opportunity for hub members to engage in collaborative training, CPD activity and to share experiences and promote the profession locally.
Research Working groupsShow content
These are DSEP recognised research groups set up to investigate specific topics relevant to sport and exercise psychology. DSEP fund two Research Working Groups per year. The primary aims of the Research Working Group initiative are;
- to enable leaders of working groups to bring together experts from within a research area to foster greater collaboration,
- to encourage and support working groups who wish to progress a specific research area within sport and exercise psychology,
- to provide small funds to be exclusively used for travel and accommodation expenses for the members of the working group.
