Dr. Rita MF de Oliveira
Portuguese Society of Sport Psychology (SPPD)
Candidate for the position of General Secretary
My name is Rita de Oliveira and I’m a Senior Lecturer at the School of Applied Sciences in London South Bank University, UK. My background is in Sport Psychology and Human Movement Sciences and I have worked in Portugal, Netherlands and Germany. I’m also a Director of Studies and Chair of the Ethics committee for the School. London South Bank University is one of the most diverse universities in Europe and places a high value in internationalisation.
In the past 4 years I was a regular member of the FEPSAC managing council. During this time, I led the education team and contributed to the research team. In these roles, I wrote the guidelines for the FEPSAC internship grant; I contributed to the FEPSAC certification process; I was involved in the organisation of the BASES-FEPSAC congress and; I co-wrote the guidelines and policy statement on FEPSAC’s involvement in funded projects.
I would like to continue my work for FEPSAC as its General Secretary. My main aim is to initiate and support activities that benefit members in the aspects of research, education and applied sport psychology. For this I will facilitate the operation of the managing council, and contribute my time knowledge and experience to the initiatives of the council.
I feel my previous experience in the Managing Council and my working relation with other FEPSAC MC members are assets, as is my commitment to continue delivering on FEPSAC’s mission.
