The Optimum Performance Program In Sports: An Evidence-Supported, Family-Based Approach to Sport Performance and Wellness
Professor Bradley Donohue of University of Nevada, Las Vegas
10th April 2017 at 1pm, Loughview Suite, Rm 08H01A, Ulster University, Jordanstown campus
The The Optimum Performance Program In Sports (TOPPS) was developed with support from the National Institutes of Health. Rooted in Family Behaviour Therapy, this intervention has demonstrated improvements in sport performance, mental health/wellness, and athlete relationships. Unique to pathologically-focused treatments, the theoretical underpinnings of this approach are grounded in optimisation science. In this presentation innovative aspects of TOPPS and issues specific to development, implementation and dissemination of optimisation programs within university and professional organisations will be underscored.
