Event description

Description

York St John University, Professor Andrew Hill will be presenting his Inaugural Lecture on Thursday 11 April 2019

Title: “Healthy Perfectionism” and other myths in sport and exercise psychology

Thirty years of research in sport and exercise psychology has taught us a great deal about perfectionism. Unfortunately, perfectionism remains misunderstood by many researchers and practitioners. The talk will present some of the major myths regarding perfectionism and explain how these myths lie in stark contrast to the findings of scientific research.

Professor Hill is the Deputy Head of School and Research Lead for the School of Sport at York St John University. He also directs one of the largest and most productive research groups in the world examining perfectionism in sport, dance, and exercise. He has co-authored over 60 peer-reviewed papers, 10 book chapters, and edited one book on this topic. His research has been funded by a number of organisations including the Wellcome Trust, The Society for Education, Music and Psychology Research, The Higher Education Academy, and The Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation. He is former section editor of the International Journal of Sport Psychology and current senior section editor of the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine and Science in Sport. He is also an editorial board member of the Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology and Sport, Exercise and Performance Psychology.
