Applying Sport Psychology Tools from a Family Systems Perspective

Presenter: Alex Diaz, Ph.D, LCSW

April 26, 2019 • 9:30am - 12:30pm

Fee: $95 | FIW Alumni: $85

CEU's: 3

Balancing athletic expectations, in addition to meeting academic requirements, navigating family dynamics, and keeping up with social media, bring high levels of stress that parents and young student-athletes are finding overwhelming. An array of emotional and behavioral family struggles may develop as a result of embracing a culture of winning at all cost and being ultra-focused on sports as a way of getting into a dreamed-of college. A Sport Psychology perspective will be used to look at the interaction of the young athlete-parent-coach triad. We will explore guidelines for situational conflicts, discuss treatment approaches, and provide tools to navigate the conflict.

Workshop is held at:
