The 3rd symposium of Sport and Psychology entitled ‘Con la excelencia en mente’ (‘Heading to excellence’) took place on August 18th and 19th in the Casa Olímpica of the historic district of Viejo San Juan, Puerto Rico. It was organized by the Puerto Rican Psychological Association and by psychologists from the group PSICOPUR, managed by Dr. Mercedes Rivera and supported by other psychological associations from the island.
For two days, the Congress speakers and participants had the opportunity to debate topics of interest for psychologists, coaches and people to promote healthy lifestyles.
The 14th ISSP World Congress also took place, arousing great interest among the professionals who are in contact with high-performance athletes and work on community public health programs. In the highly regarded San Juan radio programs, ‘Hablando con Berni’ (’Talking with Berni’) and ‘Mujer y Deporte’ (’Woman and Sport’), the Congress was also a topic discussed.
Puerto Rico expects the 2017 Congress turnout to be very high. That is why they already started to promote topics of interest to show everyone what this charming island can offer.
