Abstract [en]

This presentation will be focused on the ISSP contributions to promoting cultural epistemology of knowledge in athlete career research and also cultural sensitivity in career assistance to athletes. The initial step was made by the ISSP Position Stand on athletes’ career development and transitions (Stambulova et al., 2009) in which the authors emphasized cultural diversity in athletes’ careers, identified major cultural traditions in career research, and concluded that researchers (being aware or not) internalized their objectives from socio-cultural contexts they belonged to. The next and much bigger step was the ISSP monograph “Athletes’ careers across cultures” (Stambulova & Ryba, 2013) with several pioneer contributions to further promotion of culturally informed career research and assistance. First, this ISSP project allowed creating state of the art reviews of career research and assistance in 19 countries conducted by cultural insiders who (through this book) could provide international visibility to the career studies published in national languages as well as to the career assistance programs available in their countries. Second, the editors traced the evolution of incorporating cultural context into career research in sport psychology using the metaphor of waves with the cross-cultural wave, the cultural mindset wave, and the emerging cultural praxis wave under consideration (Ryba & Stambulova, 2013). Third, based on the analysis of the existing career literature and also ongoing changes in the global sport context, a new paradigm forcareer research/assistance termed cultural praxis of athletes’ careers was suggested (Stambulova & Ryba, 2013; 2014). In conclusion, an impact of the new paradigm (e.g., new trends in career research) and the monograph as a whole (e.g., increased interest in career research internationally) will be discussed with the acknowledgement to the ISSP efforts to support cultural diversity and decolonizing approaches in sport psychology research and applied work. © 2015 University of Bern, Institut of Sport Science
