About this Event

Join us at Barry University on Friday, February 21, 2020 and Saturday, February 22, 2020 for this year's Southeast Regional AASP Conference!

The theme of this year's conference is non-sport mental training. We will hear from individuals who utilize sport and performance psychology concepts & knowledge in non-sport contexts, and the path they took to get there.

The 2020 Southeast Regional Conference will feature three distinguished keynote speakers who fit our conference theme:

Friday, February 21st at 2:00 pm - Dr. Cory Shaffer

Dr. Shaffer completed his Ph.D. in Sport Psychology from Florida State University (FSU) in 2014. Prior to his doctoral training at FSU, he completed his B.S. in Human Development with a concentration in Social and Personality Development from Cornell University (2010) and his M.A. from Teachers College, Columbia University (2011) in Developmental Psychology.

Dr. Shaffer has earned the status of Certified Mental Performance Consultant with the Association for Applied Sport Psychology (CMPC #542) through his work counseling and consulting primarily collegiate student athletes. In 2014, Dr. Shaffer spent time working with Naval Special Warfare Group Four, based out of Virginia Beach, VA, delivering mental skills training to Navy Special Operators, their leadership, and support staff.

In his current position with Amplos, Dr. Shaffer spends time at their Greenville, SC office working with local athletes (ranging from junior level to elite/professional), as well as with teams and business professionals. He has also worked closely with Clemson University's Athletic Department (primarily with baseball, men's basketball, men's and women's golf, men's and women's soccer, and men's tennis) and Coastal Carolina University's Athletic Department.

Saturday, February 22nd at 10:00 am - Dr. Scott Rogers

Scott L. Rogers is a Lecturer in Law and Founder and Director of the Mindfulness and Law Program at the University of Miami School of Law. He is the author of Mindfulness for Law Students: Applying the Power of Mindful Awareness to Achieve Balance and Success in Law School which is being used in law schools across the country, The Six-Minute Solution: A Mindfulness Primer for Lawyers, and co-author of Mindfulness and Professional Responsibility A Guide Book for Integrating Mindfulness into the Law School Curriculum.

Rogers is a leader in the area of mindfulness and the law and works with law school faculty and administrators across the country interested in developing mindfulness classes and programs. The workshop, "Mindfulness, Balance and the Lawyer's Brain" was one of the first CLE approved programs in the country integrating mindfulness and neuroscience. Jurisight®, the program Rogers created to teach mindfulness to legal professionals, has been integrated into law school classes, and presented at CLE programs at state, national and international conferences. He has spoken to thousands of legal professionals, including lawyers, judges, law professors, and law students, appeared on television, National Public Radio, and been interviewed for magazines and newspapers across the country. His mindfulness programs have also been adapted and taught to educators, parents, therapists, negotiators, and physicians.

Saturday, February 22nd at 2:00 pm - Dr. Jenny Susser

Dr. Jenny Susser has a doctoral degree in Clinical Health Psychology, is New York State licensed, and specializes in Sport Psychology.

In 2010, she was the Team Psychologist for the South African Para Dressage Team and worked individually with some of the American athletes at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky.

We want to hear from you, too!

In addition to our keynote speakers, this year’s conference will also consist of lectures, workshops, posters, and panels to highlight student-led presentations. Although our theme is non-sport mental training, we are not limiting student presentations to this theme. We will certainly accept presentations that discuss mental training in sport & exercise.
