What's Your "Thing"?: Developing a Unique Value Proposition, Brand, and Performance Model for your Consulting Business

6 hours: Tuesday, October 13, 6:00pm-9:00pm and Wednesday, October 14, 9:00am-12:00pm
Presenter: Jim Taylor, PhD

This workshop will explore three essential components of a successful sport and performance psychology consulting business.

1. Unique value proposition: What sets you apart from others and what special value can you bring to your clients. Your UVP can include your education, training experiences, knowledge, skill sets, intellectual property, and personal narrative.
2. Brand: How your unique value proposition is expressed through your logo, motto, materials, and social media.
3. Performance model: The structure and process in which you organize your ideas about how to help clients maximize performance and achieve their goals.

This workshop will provide attendees with the information, insights, and tools to fully develop these three areas, thus increasing their chances of building a sustainable consulting business.

Prevention & Treatment for Sexual, Dating & Domestic Violence in Athlete Populations

6 hours: Wednesday, October 14, 9:00am-12:00pm & 1:00pm-4:00pm
Presenter: Mitch Abrams, PsyD, Learned Excellence for Athletes

The proliferation of high profile cases in the media where athletes have been involved with incidents of violence requires Sport Psychology to step up and be a part of the solution to the problem of sexual, dating & domestic violence in athlete populations.

This workshop will examine these problems through a proactive, preventative lens; identifying currently used models (including Bystander Education) while offering alternatives that address accountability, psychoeducation and culture readjustments. The consequences for perpetrators, survivors & organizations will also be considered (in the context of Title IX as well) to map a plan for treatment after an incident.

From the Green Flag to the Checkered Flag: Periodization, Planning, and Plot for Performance Consulting

3 hours: Thursday, October 15, 6:00pm-9:00pm
Presenter: Tami Eggleston, PhD, CC-AASP, McKendree University

"Timing is Everything!" This high-energy, fast paced workshop will focus on how sport performance consultants should plan their sessions based on the athlete's season timeframe (e.g., pre-season, training, completion, end of season, off season). In addition, strategies to handle team conflict and "one-time" presentations to groups of athletes, coaches, or parents will be discussed. The workshop will be organized around Matveyev's principles of periodization (macro, meso, micro) and will also introduce the work of Freytag's plot structure (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution.) Participants will leave this workshop with specific plans, activities, and inspiration for their own consulting activities and structure. This workshop should be beneficial for many different audiences from new members looking for good ideas to seasoned consultants looking for some new ideas and strategies to add to their toolbox. In all of my presentations my goal is to educate, engage, and inspire. Finally, my hope is that the workshop will be high energy and a fun way to spend time with like-minded colleagues.

This program has been approved for 3 hours of CE to partially meet the 6-hour CE re-certification requirement for Certified Consultants (CC-AASP).

Sport Advocacy: Speaking for the Greater Good in Sport

3 hours: Thursday, October 15, 6:00pm-9:00pm
Presenters: John Heil, DA, CC-AASP, Psychological Health Roanoke & Shirley Durtschi, PhD, CC-AASP, Mountain Minds Matter

Sport psychologists are uniquely positioned to serve as advocates for both athletes' rights and responsible organizational practices. This follows from the ethical foundations of practice, a core focus on health and well-being, and the likelihood that relevant issues will arise in the course of their work. This workshop guides decision making and action in advocacy, and prepares the sport psychologist to enter the public discourse on advocacy related issues. It includes: a review of didactic content; analysis of critical concepts underlying case conceptualization; and interactive case study discussion on sport scenarios from the public domain and the presenters' experience.

This program has been approved for 3 hours of CE to partially meet the 6-hour CE re-certification requirement for Certified Consultants (CC-AASP).
Workshop is subject to cancellation should less than 10 registrants be enrolled 30 days prior to session date.
