Dr. Amber Mosewich is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation at the University of Alberta. Her research interests focus on the examination of stress, coping, emotion, and resultant cognitive and behavioural responses within the sport domain. The sport context can present many challenges, and ensuring athletes have the skills and resources to effectively manage different issues in sport is essential to promote adaptive responses to stress and emotion and foster successful sport experiences that are also positive and healthy. A key directive of her work is to understand the psychological skills and resources necessary to facilitate successful and positive sport experiences and how best to foster their development.
