Athletes can experience mental health challenges for a variety of reasons related to on and off the field activities. This webinar, hosted by Boomerang Health, will explore how we understand emotions and communicate with our athletes and their parents about their mental health.
Emotion focused therapy techniques, such as accepting emotional awareness and validation, will be discussed giving you the tools to connect and communicate appropriately. Common mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression and ADHD will be reviewed to share the impact these challenges have on the body, brain and overall behaviour of our athletes.
Participants receive 1 NCCP PD Point
