Title: Insights into the development and use of a theoretical framework in qualitative research

This seminar illustrates the use of theoretical frameworks in qualitative research by drawing on two studies, respectively carried out as a doctoral and postdoctoral scholar. The studies are distinct, thus providing contrasting examples of: identifying and applying existing theoretical frameworks (study one) and the development and use of a unique theoretical framework (study two). Consideration is given to the overall contributions of using theoretical frameworks to structure and guide research.

Title: 'Fights are won and lost in the head - The psychology of combat sport'

In this talk we will be looking at how combat sport can prepare for competition and some of the challenges they face, including weight management. We will look at how psychological skills can be developed and used in training in competition.

We will also look at how participating in combat sports can help build mental strength, and how this mental strength can be useful for coping with performing under pressure in other areas of life.
