Dr. Kaufman's new book, Mindful Sport Performance Enhancement: Mental Training for Athletes and Coaches, published by APA Books and with a foreword by Jon Kabat-Zinn is now available to order, as is the accompanying DVD! This book is the definitive resource on MSPE and is meant for athletes, coaches, sport psychologists, students, performers in other realms (e.g., music), or really anyone interested in the relationship between mindfulness and performance. The full MSPE protocol is provided, along with handy resources, recommendations for best-practice, and descriptions of the underlying science.
Also, Dr. Kaufman is currently partnering with Fairfax County Public Schools to bring MSPE to student-athletes throughout that school district. So far, he's offered trainings at Woodson High School and Madison High School. MSPE is additionally being incorporated into the mentoring program being offered by The True Athlete Project.
And, a collaboration is currently underway with an English Premier League academy.
