On December 6th,(ie soon) Daniel Smyth (from Brent Centre for Young People) visits the Freud Museum to talk about the use of football as a means of working with adolescent boys expressing emotional and behavioural difficulties. His project “Sport and Thought” was designed to help these boys to think about themselves as emotional beings, and to then bring about changes through the use of self-reflection and therapeutic interventions during coaching sessions.

The project is inspired by the idea that an individual’s reaction in a sporting context will mirror his reactions at school, home and on the streets. Sounds fascinating to me.
