Imagine you are an expert in your field who has just arrived in another country. The culture there is foreign to you and you do not speak the language. In such a situation, what value do your skills have? How effective will your work be?
The truth is, if we have not accurately interpreted the cultural context in which we are working, our presence can prove more hindrance than help, no matter how developed our skills are. The ability to develop cultural literacy is therefore a skill in itself. Come learn more about it at the Sport Psychology program at John F. Kennedy University’s latest Professional Development Seminar, lead by Shannon Baird, Ph.D.
Having spent many years offering mental skills training in a military context, Dr. Baird will offer participants insight into the particulars of military culture as well as methods for tuning into vital contextual cues. Participants will also have the opportunity to examine the self, explains Fernando Lopez, professor in the Sport Psychology program. “What beliefs and values do you carry around that might hinder and help you in that environment?”
Whether you’re interested in applying sport psychology to a military setting, or simply wish enhance your abilities to adapt to various contexts, join us for this eye-opening, versatile seminar!
