This public lecture will be delivered by Dr  Elizabeth Stamp, Lecturer in Health and Exercise Psychology at Loughborough University, on 16 March 2021. The talk will discuss mental toughness and its relationship with both elite sport and weight management.

Mental toughness is a characteristic that was originally associated with the success of elite athletes. This talk will progress our understanding of mental toughness and expand our knowledge of the concept in elite sport to behaviour change and weight management. This presentation will challenge previous work, demonstrating that mental toughness does not always lead to success and goal achievement. Strategies will be offered for weight management and behaviour change based on an individual’s mental toughness level.

Dr Elizabeth Stamp researches behaviour change of health-related lifestyle behaviours, predominantly focusing on physical activity and diet. Her research focuses on changing behaviours in order to enhance quality of life and reduce the likelihood of disease onset.
