12th Congress of Sport Psychology

Under The Honour Presidency of His Royal Highness Crown Prince Moulay Rachid and under the auspices of the International Society of Sport Psychology, the Moroccan Association of Sport Psychology has the honour and pleasure to invite colleagues and professionals from all over the world to participate in the 12th Congress of Sport Psychology under the theme:

“Meeting New Challenges and Bridging Cultural Gaps in Sport and Exercise Psychology”.

The 12th World Congress will take place in Marrakech, Morocco in June 2009.

The 12th World Congress intends to cover various aspects of modern sport and exercise psychology and to favour meetings of sport psychologists, researchers, coaches and athletes with different gender, cultures and orientations.

The high quality of the Scientific Programme of the Congress will open new perspectives on the Science of Art and Sport and Exercise psychology and on issues related to the athlete’s mental management and social changes. The different sessions of the congress will provide a full update on the most important aspects of athlete’s mental training and on the latest achievements in the field of sport and exercise psychology. This fruitful exchange of knowledge and experiences aims at further developing a feeling of identity of sport psychology and to bridge cultural gaps between countries and societies.

The teams of the International Society of Sport Psychology (ISSP) and the Moroccan Association of Sport Psychology (AMPSYS) expect your active involvement as sport psychologists, researchers, scholars, athletes, and coaches, and hope that you will contribute to the 12th World Congress Programme by submitting abstracts and papers for oral and poster presentations.
