Dealing with Different Cultures: Practitioners and Athletes / Clients
By Dr Stephanie J. Hanrahan
This presentation focuses on the fact that to be effective practitioners we need to be aware of issues that are part of athletes?clients?and our own cultural identities. Cultural differences in values, norms, beliefs, and behaviours will be introduced, as well as specific cultural examples from sport. Those present will be encouraged to think about their own cultural identities and biases that they bring with them to interactions with athletes and clients.
