“Psyching Team” at New York marathon

This fall, for the eleventh consecutive year, Ethan Gologor, chairman of the Psychology Department at Medgar Evers College, CUNY, has been appointed captain of the “Psyching Team” for the ING New York City Marathon, the largest in the world. ThePsych Team helps runners mentally prepare for the psychological rigors of running such a long distance.

For more than a decade, Gologor has pounded the pavement and stressed the importance of sports education to the Greater Brooklyn community.  His training and supervision of mental health practitioners, sports psychologists and students, the majority of whom have been Medgar students, has benefited this community from an educational and physical standpoint.  As a teacher for over 40 years, Gologor, while constantly emphasizing the importance of being physically active, also recognizes that something as arduous as running 26.2 miles includes both strong cognitive and emotional skills — principles which he has expounded in three books:  Some “Psyching Team” members have even come away from the experience determined to run the course themselves as Gologor himself has done.
Anche quest’anno e per l’undicesima volta consecutiva, Ethan Gologor, direttore del Dipartimento di Psicologia del Medgar Evers College è stato nominato reposanbile del “Psyching Team” della maratona di New York. Questa squadra di psicologi aiuterà i podisti a prepararsi alle difficoltà mentali che incontreranno in una gara così lunga.
Per più di 10 anni, Gologor ha sottolineato l’importanza dell’educazione allo sport nella comunità della Greater Brooklin. Della supervisione che ha fornito ai professionisti della salute, agli psicologi dello sport e agli studenti. Nel suo lavoro ha costantemente enfatizzato l’importanza di essere fisicamente attivi e ha riconosciuto che un impegno strenuo come la maratona richiede uno sviluppo di alto livello delle abilità cognitive e emotive. Principi che approfondito nei suoi libri: Psychodynamic Tennis, Psychodynamic Running, e Today I Am a Runner.
