#PsychMapping is a theoretical and practical approach to psychological consulting practices. It includes specific professional solutions that make consultations easier and more effective. The theoretical basis is the #KnowledgeMap developed by Alexander T. Latinjak (University of Suffolk) and Antonis Hatzigeorgiadis (University of Thessaly).
The #KnowledgeMap serves two functions:
It summarises the important concepts of performance psychology and provides a holistic view of the literature; in an accessible way, so anyone can understand the basics of performance psychology.
The #KnowledgeMap can be read as a model that brings together a breadth of research topics into a coherent and simple model that explains people and their behaviour.
The course also focuses on the #PsychMapping exercise. This is where clients, guided by consultants, develop a personalised map, showing key aspects that explain themselves, their behaviour, performance, and well-being.
Developed by Alexander T. Latinjak in collaboration with Eduard Morelló of Villareal Football Club, this exercise has been tested in various sports and non-sports sectors, including the BT research team.
In this course, participants will be introduced to the pillars of #PsychMapping, the #KnowledgeMap, and most importantly, the #PsychMapping exercise, which directly impacts their approach to future consulting work.
