For caregiving professionals, high-performance athletes, and everyone in-between – it has never been harder to combat occupational turnover intentions, burnout, fatigue, frustration, and cynicism in the aftermath of an overworked COVID-19 world. This seminar will suggest how we can overcome these obstacles by examining the psychological resilience skills possessed by ultra-athletes, and how we can translate these highly beneficial skills into our own professions, sporting endeavours, and everyday lives.
Extreme endurance sports carry a significant physical and mental toll which can have profound transformational capabilities. Ultra-athletes possess a high-level of resilience and mental fortitude to succeed within their respective competitions – key skills which are applicable to everyday life. Extreme endurance sports are described as ‘meaningful’ and ‘life-enhancing’ (Immonen et al.) with the potential to be used as therapeutic interventions to address everyday psychological issues.
This unique seminar focuses on the challenges we might encounter across sport and the workplace, and how they often result in cognitive depletion and catastrophe. Our accomplished speakers will suggest how individuals can utilise mental hardiness skills to develop mental toughness and overcome these obstacles.
Topics include aspects of personality; psychological skills; cognition; emotional and behavioural regulation; leadership and the training environment; mental toughness; mental strength and behaviour in training and competition; maximising tolerance of diversity and unpredictability; and motivation.
