Andrew Lane, Professor of Sport Psychology at the University, has spent four years conducting the EROS (‘Emotion Regulation of Others and Self’) project.
His webinar on June 4 at 3pm will be entitled “I want to perform better; so how should I feel and what should I do?” and will provide a summary of his findings.
The webinar is the first in a planned series organised jointly by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) and the publishing company ‘Human Kinetics’.
Split into two parts, the first part of the session will focus 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 and trying to change the emotions of someone else.
Speaking about the free webinar, Professor Lane said: “Competition and getting nervous go hand in hand. Managing emotions effectively can make the difference between winning and losing, or feeling happy or miserable.
“This free webinar is an interactive project and a must for athletes, students, coaches, parents or anyone else wishing to improve their mental game by learning to manage their emotions”.
Professor Lane has published over 125 peer refereed articles and authored two books over the course of his career. His recent work into emotion regulation culminated in an online project in conjunction with the BBC fronted by former athlete Michael Johnson.
