Damien Clement, acting dean, Honors College, and associate professor, Sport and Exercise Psychology/Athletic Training, College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences, has received Fellow status in the Association of Applied Sport Psychology. AASP will announce Clement’s appointment to Fellow status during the 2020 AASP Annual Conference this October in Orlando, Florida.
“Damien Clement’s election to Fellow is a well-earned recognition of his contributions to AASP and to the field of sport psychology. As an AASP Fellow, Clement will vote on matters involving ethical principles, along with the group’s leaders who are committed to the support and stewardship of AASP,” said Sam Zizzi, Dr. Pat Fehl Endowed Professor and associate dean for research, CPASS.
“To see my name among the many distinguished individuals who have been recognized as AASP fellows is truly a humbling experience. It is an excellent testament to current and former students and faculty members associated with the sport and exercise psychology program at WVU,” said Clement, who has been a member of AASP for 17 years.
In addition to Clement and Zizzi, other CPASS faculty members who are AASP Fellows include Jack Watson, CPASS dean and professor, Kristen Dieffenbach, associate professor, and Ed Etzel, professor emeritus.
The Association for Applied Sport Psychology is the premier international organization for professionals who work with athletes, coaches, non-sport performers and tactical occupations to enhance their performance from a psychological standpoint.
