UWS Seminar Series featuring Dr. Matthew Condie – “Soothing the Stress”

April 30 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Announcing the next installment in the UWS Seminar Series — “Soothing the Stress,” a keynote by UWS’s own adjunct faculty member, Dr. Matthew Condie.


Soothing the Stress: Advancing in ambiguity through resilience, belonging, and post-traumatic growth

Adversity is a common human experience and can be difficult to tolerate, particularly amid ambiguity, challenges, and constant change. If not explored and addressed, these factors can disconnect those currently or aspiring to work in healthcare from their “why.” Therefore, conceptualizing and operationalizing resilience and belonging in the context of post-traumatic growth is necessary. In doing so, individuals, teams, and systems can emerge stronger, more connected, and more aware to navigate future ambiguity. This keynote will take us on a journey to connect, reflect, empower, and act in preparing, performing, and replenishing in a changing world.

Following the keynote, teams can dive deeper and continue the conversations to operationalize the keynote content and bridge intention with action.

About Dr. Condie

When we read a speaker bio, or are asked to provide one, the default can be read or share what we’ve accomplished and what we’re doing. Additionally, when meeting someone new, it can be more socially acceptable to ask, “What do you do?” rather than the intrusive “Who are you?” I want this bio to be flipped to give you a sense of who I am that informs what I do. I am beyond grateful to have many people and environments who have shaped me as a person and a professional. These people and the environment have unleashed my curiosity, nourished my “why,” and provided me with the opportunities to feel a sense of belonging to “be me authentically.” UWS is one of those experiences.

I am a registered psychologist based in Australia with dual training in sport and performance psychology and clinical psychology. I thrive in having diverse experiences across multiple systems. Currently, these include providing athletes and teams with high-performance and clinical mental health services as part of the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and Australian Football League Players Association (AFLPA), teaching in the Sport and Performance Psychology programs at UWS, a visiting academic in teaching and research supervision through the University of Adelaide and Central Queensland University private practice, providing leadership in a sport development school, and part of the global Resilience & Well-being team of consultants for Google (Team Asia Pacific). My friends often ask, “How do you do it?” With a sense of humility, I respond, “It gives me energy when I am authentically me.” My way of being is leading by example (for myself and others) if I’m going to be on my game. I strive to actualize Ghandi’s “be the change you want to see.”

I’m looking forward to continuing the presentation from Dr. Moreland-Capuia as we meander through ambiguity, change, resilience, belonging, and post-traumatic growth. Thank you in advance for your attendance and for giving me your precious resource of time to connect.
