Abstract

There has been a long-standing discourse about science-driven practice, and related, the scientist practitioner, spanning more than 40 years. The International Society of Sport Psychology is devoting considerable attention to scientist practitioners within the recently established International Society of Sport Psychology Registry (ISSP-R) and Supervisor (ISSP-S) designations. The ISSP seeks to expand this discussion by (a) synthesising the literature, and (b) adopting a more geographically expansive outlook towards scientist practitioner knowledge. This position stand is presented in three sections. Section one is focused on the characteristics of the scientist practitioners. Section two exemplifies two approaches (Great Britain and China) in the application of scientist practitioner service. Section three includes six conclusions and recommendations towards the furtherance of this expansive discussion within the international field of sport psychology.
