As part of the School of Science and Technology SHAPE  Research Centre Seminar Series,Dr Nathan Smith, University of Manchester presents: Psychology on expeditions: End to end considerations for safety, performance and health.

Abstract

In this presentation I will talk about a range of psychological factors relevant to safety, performance and health in challenging expedition environments. This includes pre-expedition considerations related to personnel selection, how and what to monitor in the expedition setting and the psychosocial dynamics we might expect to observe in expeditioners upon their return. Content will be informed by data collected from individuals and teams in polar, desert, mountain, cave and space environments. Broadly, this applied research is informed by cognitive-motivational-relational theory and self-determination theory perspectives. At the end of the presentation, I will share some examples of how this research is currently informing policy and practice and potential future research directions.

This seminar is hosted by Dr Laura Healy
