Dr. Adam Naylor, leader of Telos Sport Psychology Consulting and faculty member at Boston University, will talk about how to make sports a lifelong adventure. Dr. Naylor’s talk is geared toward parents of children of all ages involved in a sport or multiple sports, and his presentation is especially pertinent with the start of the school year and fall youth and high school sports.                       


Dr. Naylor’s presentation will address the following:

-       developmentally appropriate goals for children at the various stages of their involvement in sports, 

-       nurturing confident student-athletes,

-       preventing burnout,

-       improving communication and trust within sports communities, 

-       parents’ communication with children that focuses on attitude rather than simply winning and losing  

-       how parents can manage their own emotions regarding competition, and

-       how parents can help their children keep sports related issues in perspective.


Dr. Naylor brings over fifteen years of applied sport psychology experience (Olympic, professional, collegiate and elite junior).  He is the leader of Telos Sport Psychology Coaching, a Clinical Assistant Professor at Boston University and the Column Editor of Sport Psychology and Counseling for The International Journal of Athletic Therapy and Training
