CENTER DIRECTOR DELIVERS PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS

Dr. Trent Petrie delivered his presidential address for Division 47 (exercise and sport psychology) of the American Psychological Association at the annual convention, which was held July 31 to August 4 in Honolulu, HI.  In his speech, entitled ‘What Psychology Can Teach Us About Being A Sport Psychologist,’ Dr. Petrie argued that sport psychology has not as fully embraced current theories and empirically-supported approaches from general psychology that could be useful in the applied work that is done in the field.
