Career Transitions in Sport: New Trends in Research and Practice
Wednesday, February 22, 2017
Session length is 75 minutes.
Natalia Stambulova, PhD, Halmstad University, Sweden
Contemporary careers in sport are so intense that athletes are almost always in one or even several simultaneous athletic and non-athletic transitions and, therefore, they might need professional assistance. During the last decade several new trends in career transition research and practice have evolved.
This webinar will have four parts:
- Brief overview the current structure of the athlete career topic in sport psychology, emphasizing how career development and career transition theoretical frameworks and research are related to career assistance
- Introduction of new trends in international studies on normative transitions (mainly, the junior-to-senior from a holistic lifespan and a holistic ecological perspectives), non-normative (injury), and quasi-normative (cultural transitions, transitions to the residential high performance centers, and big competitions as transitions)
- Information on emerging directions in applied work relevant to the new transition research
- Participant discussion and questions on how transition research informs relevant practice, and vice versa
