Dr Amit Mistry is a Clinical Lecturer in Sport & Exercise Medicine, he is the Chair of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Sport & Exercise Special Interest Group and he is a Clinical Sport and Exercise Psychiatrist from the UK.
Dr Mistry is the co-author of a recently released book, “Case Studies in Sports Psychiatry”, which is a must for anyone working in the field of sport and exercise. Dr Mistry shares many learnings pertinent to every athlete, every coach, every health and sport practitioner.
Topics explored include:
- Exercise Addiction – What is it and how is it differentiated from a healthy undertaking of sporting activity. When Dr Mistry shared the characteristics of exercise addiction, I’ll put my hand up and say I ticked most of the boxes.
- What is the Role of Perfectionism in Sport – when is it helpful and when does it become problematic or potentially maladaptive.
- Depression and anxiety in athletes, what are the warning signs and what are the ways these conditions can be best treated and stewarded.
In other learnings include the topics of eating disorders and disordered eating, event anxiety and ADHD and its role in sporting performance.
