Dr. Jeff Caron is an Assistant Professor in the School of Kinesiology and Physical Activity Sciences at Université de Montréal. Prior to his appointment, Jeff obtained a PhD in Kinesiology and Physical Education from McGill University in 2016, and he was subsequently a Postdoctoral Fellow at McGill University (2016-2017) and Yale University (2017-2018). Jeff’s research program focuses on better understanding psychosocial aspects of sport-related concussions and seeks to answer two main research questions:
1) How can we most effectively disseminate concussion information to members of the sport community?
2) Which psychosocial strategies can assist athletes’ recovery and return to sport, school, and daily life?
Most of his research has been developed using qualitative approaches, which provides a unique—yet complementary— perspective on athletes’ lived experiences with sport-related concussions. Additionally, Jeff works with athletes and coaches in his capacity as an academic member of the Canadian Sport Psychology Association.
