  1. Hi Dr. Charlie Brown,

    My name is Sophie and I am currently researching the effect emotions have in athletes and there performance in and out of there sport for my Year 10 Psychology course. As a part of my course I am required to consult an individual who is deemed an ‘expert’ in the field. Throughout my research, I came across your name and professional expertise.

    If you have time within the next week, could you please answer the following questions?

    1) Do you think elite sport has an influence on the emotions felt by athletes and their response to these emotions if so how?

    2) Do you think sport has a wider influence on how one can control, handle, and process their own emotions not just when participating in sport but also in day to day life?

    3) Does sport in your opinion increase or decrease the likelihood of developing mental health issues such as anxiety and depression if so is it common for athletes to put off going and getting help and support around it?

    I am to begin my collation of this data at the end of next week. Thank you so much for supporting me with this research.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Regards,

    Sophie

    1. Thank you for your offer; regrettably however, my schedule is such that I must decline. Best of luck with your project. CB

  2. Hi Dr. Charlie Brown,

    My name is Austin Carlson, I am going to be a Sophomore and I am studying Psychology at Edgewood College in Madison, Wisconsin. I am on the men’s basketball team and I have a good experience in the sports world. It is my dream to one day work with an NBA team of some sort. Although in some of my peer’s eyes this may be a long shot, I believe I have the drive and the work ethic to someday make this dream become possible.

    My question to you is what are the next steps I need to take to ensure I can someday be a sports psychologist.

    If you have time, would you mind answering the following questions?

    1) What program’s should be looking into for grad school?

    2) Should I be pursuing a master’s or a doctorate degree?

    3) Where should I start in terms of making connections to make my to the NBA?

    4) How can I start to get my name out there in the Psychology field?

    I am looking forward to hearing from you and learning some tips from a professional

    Thank you, Austin.

    1. Hi Austin,
      I appreciate your interest in sport psychology and recommend that you check out the Association for Applied Sport Psychology (https://appliedsportpsych.org/about-the-association-for-applied-sport-psychology/about-sport-and-performance-psychology/) I consider this to the premiere organization of professional sport psychology in the US, and encourage you to attend one of their conferences where the questions you have posed can be addressed through the presentations, workshops and interactions with other conference attendees.
      Good luck!
      Dr. Charlie
