Giving AF (Part 3): Environments for Exploration


Jereme Sanders   Part 1: Trust & Honesty Part 2: Awareness Before Advice   Through building this circle of awareness we can more effectively share discoveries rather than simple techniques. For example, often times in my own life it has been discovering the epiphany of a new technique, a breakthrough in strength/mobility or the overcoming […]

Sevinc Gökçe English Translation: Football fields with artificial grass are ideal for children who are interested in skating or skateboarding, to get used to the balance of the tools and do standing up/climbing exercises. A safe space for them to experience for themselves without you holding on. At this point, it doesn’t matter whether he […]

A Beautiful Practice

C2 1

Chandler Stevens   Each psychology is a confession, and the worth of a psychology for another person lies not in the places where he can identify with it because it satisfies his psychic needs, but where it provokes him to work out his own psychology in response. (Hillman, 1975, p. xviii)   James Hillman was […]

Terrestial Nostos

Problem Solving: Roots or Environment?

Screen Shot 2022 02 02 At 10.55.48 Am

Samantha Faulhaber   It seems to me that there are at least two most effective, general routes towards healing people in productive ways. The first, or the first I’ll speak to, not necessarily the first in some sort of heirarchy, is digging for root causes. The idea that rather than treating symptoms you’re better off […]

Alter the Environment, Alter the Behavior


Jenn Pilotti   A behavior is an output in the form of action, and is a response to context. An action implies movement of some sort, so another way of thinking about behavior is that it is a movement that satisfies a desired outcome based on environmental cues. What that desired outcome is depends on […]

The Invisible Obstacle


Jereme Sanders   Analyzing and Overcoming Fear I’ve devoted my life to progress, to taking paths of resistance whether they exist in the world or in my mind so that I may, through these challenges, better myself. In this journey, I’ve found one obstacle that is nearly always present. This invisible challenge manifests itself in […]

Meaning in Movement

Movement Culture

The parts of our PE curriculum that I find the most difficult to teach are establishing behaviours for movement (Affective Domain) and finding meaning in movement. Whilst basic sports psychology may have the potential answers for the former, I continue to struggle with the latter as it isn’t one that can be taught. It isn’t as simple as […]
