Alexis Ruffault has a PhD in health psychology from Paris Descartes University (2017). He is a regular member of the French Society of Sport Psychology (SFPS) since 2010, and was elected to be part of the Managing Council since 2017. He currently works as a researcher in sport and health psychology at the French Institute of Sport (INSEP), in Paris. This position allows him to provide interventions aiming at training mental skills, but also to provide cognitive-behavior therapies to injured athletes. His work as a researcher focuses on the psychological aspects of sport injury, from prevention to impact to return to sport, as well as changing behaviors preventing injuries (e.g., warm-up, recovery, diet) using sociocognitive theory-based techniques.
