The Sport Psych Show

Jul 20, 2020

In this episode, I’m joined by Rory Mack and Andrew Wood. Andrew is a Sport and Exercise Psychology Lecturer teaching at multiple universities. He also works as lead sport psychologist to the B1 football squad.

Rory has been based at Sheffield Hallam University for the past 12 years. He is a post Viva PhD candidate. His PhD is in Motivational Interviewing in applied sport psychology.

Rory and Andrew have written a fascinating research paper which discusses combining Motivational Interviewing (MI) with Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT) in a series of sessions with an athlete and this is the focus of our conversation. Over the course of 6 sessions, the paper retraces how the frameworks were used to help the athlete think more effectively.
