Slice of PIE is back with some exciting personal and professional news.
We also get to speak to Dr. Jamie Barker, former chair of the British Psychological Society's (BPS) Division of Sport and Exercise Psychology (DSEP) and 'Pracademic' with over 20 years of experience.
In this episode we dig into his experience working with the British Paralympics team in Rio, and from working in sport to business to the military and many other performance environments.
Jamie is also the author of multiple books including The Psychology of Soccer: More Than Just a Game - which came out in 2020, in partnership with Joe Dixon, Richard Thelwell and Ian Mitchell (see link below).
Jamie is also one of the nicest blokes around, and kindly gave enough time to fill two episodes’ worth of insight and experience. This is 'part two' of our conversation.
