Free webinar on emotions and emotion regulation in athletes

You can now download a recording of the free webinar “I want to perform better; so how should I feel and what should I do?” presented by Professor Andy Lane, BASES.

andy lane_sSport is associated with intense emotions and this webinar will look at both emotions and emotion regulation in athletes.

Split into two parts, the first focuses on what emotions athletes want to feel, how they get into this psychological state and how a practitioner might assist with this process.

The second part will look at interpersonal emotion regulation; that is trying to change the emotions of someone else.

It will describe how the emotions of one person influence the emotions of someone else, and emotion regulation strategies that could be used. The presentation draws from a four-year project funded called Emotion Regulation of Others and Self.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Identify emotions associated with best and worst performance and examine how one might go about identifying these.
  • Describe self-regulating strategies
  • Describe ways in which to use practitioners develop interventions to help athletes manage unwanted emotions.
  • Describe how one’s own emotions can influence the emotions of someone else.
  • Describe strategies designed to regulate emotions in someone else.

Professor Lane has published over 125 peer-refereed articles, authored 2 books and given numerous presentations.

His recent work has been part of a 4-year project on emotion regulation on others and self that culminated in an online project in conjunction with the BBC, fronted by former athlete Michael Johnson.

This webinar is the first in a planned series, organised jointly by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) and Human Kinetics.

    Sounds like a really interesting topic for a webinar. I don’t train other people but I do train myself, so I’m hoping I can pick up a few things from this that will help me on a daily basis 🙂 Hopefully there is still room for me to sign-up.
