I’m delighted to speak to Dr Alex Auerbach in this week’s episode. Alex is the Director of Wellness and Development for the Toronto Raptors, where he is responsible for all things mental health, mental performance and off-court development for players and staff. He joined the Raptors after serving as the Director of Clinical and Sport Psychology for the University of Arizona.
Alex has worked with NCAA Division-I schools in the Pac-12, ACC, Big 12, and Conference USA, where his work has included serving as the performance consultant for a Conference USA bowl-winning football team, ACC championship team, and student-athletes who continued in professional sport and/or the Olympic games. He earned his doctoral degree in counselling psychology with a specialisation in Sport and Performance Psychology from the University of North Texas.
