2017 Symposium

Social Justice through Sport and Exercise Psychology

A symposium at University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA
Thursday April 6 - Saturday April 8, 2017
Registration: Professional = $75, Student = $40

Our aim is to bring together sport and exercise psychology researchers and practitioners whose work focuses on social justice and praxis, marginalized communities, participants lacking scholarly attention, or that falls outside the positivist mainstream of sport psychology. A main purpose of this symposium is to bring together people passionate about these issues so that we can share our work as well as support and encourage each other. The symposium structure will encourage interaction and dialogue so that we may discuss professional issues as well as our research and practice.

Follow our website for updated information. A call for presentation proposal abstracts will be available soon. Abstract proposals for presentations will be due February 1, 2017.
