Jenny Murphy & Tom Daly attend IADT Taster Day

IADT was delighted to welcome two very special guests - Leinster and Irish Rugby duo, Jenny Murphy and Tom Daly - for our Applied Psychology Taster Day event.

The Taster Day Workshop was organised and chaired by Sport Psychology Lecturer, Dr Olivia Hurley.

The theme of the session was: ‘Resilience for Life: Lessons from Elite Athletes’. The visiting students who registered to attend this event were treated to a fascinating Questions and Answers session with Jenny and Tom, who spoke openly and honestly about various aspects of their sporting careers to date, focusing on how their participation in sport has especially helped them to develop their resilience for coping with life events, not just sport related difficulties they have faced to date. Both guests imparted some excellent advice to the students and staff members present at the session.

Our sincere thanks to Jenny and Tom for giving of their time so generously to take part in this Applied Psychology Taster Day.
