New Publication / PhD Studentship

Screen Shot 2013-10-13 at 13.15.42Although the following paper has been available on line for sometime, it has now been published in hard copy. The paper concerns work by the MTOUGH group that examined and found significant and positive relations between mental toughness and dispositional flow. The relationship appears to be reciprocal and provides the first evidence that mentally tough athletes experience flow more often than less tough athletes. In many way we argue that mental toughness is akin to the rather ill-defined concept of the autotelic personality.

I should also use this chance to provide an update on the forthcoming PhD studentship that will be available in the School of Sport and Exercise Science, here at the University of Lincoln. The advertisement is due for release in late April or early May. More details to follow when I have them.
