International society of sport psychology (ISSP): An overview
AUTHOR(S): Ashok Kumar and Dr. Sandeep Bhalla
The ISSP is a multidisciplinary association of scholars whose research interests focus on some aspects of sport psychology. It is the only worldwide organisation of scholars explicitly concerned with sport psychology. The Managing Council of ISSP developed a Strategic Plan in spring 2015 to fully achieve the objectives of ISSP current mission. With the number of countries developing more international competitive athletic programs each year, the roles of the ISSP become more apparent and necessary. Guidance has been set by ISSP to uphold high levels of professionalism, ethical attitudes, and behaviour, as an ISSP- R practitioner. It is the ISSP-R practitioners’ responsibility to aspire to the highest possible standards of conduct. The development of a dynamic ethical code for an ISSP-R practitioners’ work-related conduct requires a personal commitment to a lifelong effort to act ethically; to encourage ethical behaviour by students, supervisees, employees, and colleagues, as appropriate; and to consult with others, as needed, concerning ethical problems.
