​​Book ​O​nline​​​​

For many, injury is an inevitable and extremely stressful consequence of participating in sport. The primary focus of Lynne’s research for the last 20 years, this lecture will reflect on the role that psychological factors play in the occurrence of, and athletes’ responses to injury - and why injury may be such a stressful experience for those unfortunate enough to experience it. It will also consider the challenges associated with conducting meaningful research in the area – and how this aligns with a quality versus quantity research agenda. Finally, in reflecting on a journey of aspiration that will resonate with many, Lynne will consider the synergy between research, professional practice, and teaching that has informed her career.
