The Sport and Performance Psychology Lab at the University of Toronto focuses on understanding the psychological aspects of sport participation and performance.
Our primary areas of research are:
stress, coping, emotions, and emotion regulation in sport
social and interpersonal processes of emotion, emotion regulation, and coping in sport
athlete mental health and well-being
youth athletes, parent and coach influences in youth sport
We use a variety of qualitative and quantitative approaches to understand the experiences of athletes, parents, and coaches to promote positive sport experiences.
