Jeffrey Huber, PhD ©2014
You must log in to watch this webinar recording.

In this free hour-long webinar, Jeff Huber, renowned former diving coach, professor of psychology, and author of Applying Educational Psychology in Coaching Athletes, discusses the psychological aspects of emotions and how coaches and athletes can harness emotions to achieve high level performance when it matters most.


This webinar will help those who teach, practice, and aspire to be great coaches learn to:

  • Recognize the role of emotions in sport performance.
  • Understand emotional predispositions of athletes and how to maintain or recapture optimal emotions.
  • Help athletes make accurate reflective appraisals of their performances and handle emotional challenges.
  • Lead with emotional control and balance.

To learn more strategies for developing athlete success, view Dr. Huber’s previous webinar, “From Passive to Passionate: Developing the Salivating Athlete.”

Huber was named USA National Coach of the Year for the 13th time in 2013 and has served as U.S. coach for the Sydney (2000), Athens (2004), and Beijing (2008) Olympic Games.  Dr. Huber is currently Professor of Practice in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Indiana University where he teaches Introductory Psychology and Psychology of Human Performance.  He has also taught Educational Psychology for Teachers and Motor Learning, as well as guest lectured for Theories of High Level Performance, Exercise Science, and Philosophical Foundations of Coaching.
