President's Opening Message

Dear Congress Participants,

I welcome you to the 2021 ISSP World Congress, being held virtually in Taipei. The ISSP World Congress has always been a historic event, and this congress is of no exception; it has uniqueness, though in a most different way than any previous ISSP Congress event. Amid Covid and the fatigue we have all encountered as professionals and in our personal lives, there is no more important time than the present to unite and exchange ideas focused on human potential through sport and physical activity. We reside within the world of movement, as avid participants and simultaneously, as supporters of clients and participants, with their own unique motives, leading to engagement.

The 2021 ISSP World Congress will be an open exchange of ideas through virtual means. Ideas, catalyzed through challenges, leading to scientific and practical resolutions, will be brought forth from you, the internationally composed congress participants. The topics will span diversity of nationality, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, among a breadth of intersecting aspects of human identity and their reciprocal relationship within our field. The keynote addresses and award recipients will reinforce the inevitable diversity of intellectual exchanges typical in an ISSP World Congress.

Also considered within this congress, among the vast diversity of subject matter in exercise and sport, is the recent Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, completed during a pandemic. There are few more evocative contexts through which to consider human resolve among athletes, coaches, and organizations. Time will tell the full scale of science and practice resulting from the recent Tokyo Olympics. However, the breadth of presentations relating to the recent Olympic context will span high-performance sport, youth sport, and translate to human resolve in physical activity contexts.

I wish you every enjoyment and learning opportunity gained through this event, where presentations will span the continents of Africa, South America, Asia, Europe, North America, and the Oceanic region. While engaging in the congress, please do remember there will be a General Assembly scheduled at a globally accessible time, where you will most certainly gain insight into the current and future activities of the ISSP. You belong within the ISSP, and there will certainly be many places for you within our evolving organizational structure. Welcome to the Congress!

Warmest wishes,

Robert Schinke

Given the mission of International Society of Sport Psychology (ISSP) and in the spirit of globalization, internationalization, unification, and collaboration, ISSP has established an internationally recognized consultant/practitioner registry that represents the minimum standard of sport psychology practice. The ISSP-Registry (ISSP-R) aims to respond to the high international mobility of both sporting clients and consultants as well as increase the visibility and credibility of the profession internationally. Importantly, it aims to augment the professional standards of the field with a particular focus on supporting those countries in which applied sport psychology is at a developing phase.

Please visit the website here to read about the Emerging Practitioner Route to ISSP-R This route is for early-career practitioners looking to demonstrate their educational and practical competence in the field. In addition to the minimum academic (i.e., BSc/BA, MSc) and supervised experience requirements, applicants will be required to engage and successfully pass three short ISSP-specific modules focused on cultural competence, ethics, and mental health.

ISSP and Society of Sport and Exercise Psychology of Taiwan (SSEPT) will be hosting the three ISSP-R modules for those sport psychology participants interested in taking them. We have invited three keynote speakers for the ISSP-R modules programme including Robert Schinke (current president of ISSP and a professor at Laurentian University), Gangyan Si (former president of ISSP and a sport psychologist at Hong Kong Sports Institute), and Chris Harwood (current accreditation chair of ISSP and a professor at Loughborough University).

Important Information:

Each module consists of a 2.5 hrs workshop seminar conducted online via Zoom in October 2021. After completion of each workshop, there is a 1000-word reflection assignment to be completed and submitted within 2 months of the workshop. Each assignment is checked and assessed with successful participants being awarded a certificate of completion.

Submissions of applications for the ISSP-R emerging practitioner route will open on October 31st with a closing deadline for submission of January 31st, 2022. For those wishing to apply for ISSP-R via the emerging route, you will have time to have completed the ISSP-R modules before the deadline date of submitting your ISSP-R application by January 31st.
