About this Research Topic
From the 13th to 15th of June 2018, the French Society of Sport Psychology (FSSP) hosted its 6th International Congress at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland). This international symposium focused on the contribution of sport psychology to the double aims of physical, sports and artistic activities: improving the performance and developing the person. This congress invited researchers from the field of sport psychology to present their relevant research in the form of symposia or individual presentations. It also provided a space for sharing innovative experiences or professional practices in theme-related workshops specifically dedicated to sport psychology practitioners and mental trainers.
This Research Topic is focused on highlighting the topics that emerged from the presentations and discussions from this Congress. We welcome opinion articles that focus on current and hot themes of research related to performance, health and artistic dimensions in sports psychology. Specific five themes we would like to highlight in this collection are:
a) talent development;
b) brain activity signatures;
c) collective activity;
d) involvement in physical activity;
e) health in performing artists.
The collection will include 5 feature papers that will consist of two parts. The first part will be written by the key-note speakers that will summarize their presentations, key findings, and ideas. The second part will be written by invited researchers with the relevant expertise outlining recent, unexplored questions or recent developments on this same topic.
