I am presenting at the University of North Dakota Psychology Department's Professional Development Series (PDS) on The Intersection of Sport Injury and Mental Health. This presentation is geared toward many disciplines that work with athletes (psychology, kinesiology, sports medicine including athletic training and physical therapy, dietetics, athletes, and coaching staff).

Attendees of this presentation will learn about the interaction between psychological processes and sport injuries. Factors related to effectively identifying mental health issues during the injury process will also be presented. Finally, tips related to working effectively across disciplines will be discussed.
