An invited symposium on sports concussion was chaired by Professor Ann Edwards at the 30th International Congress of Psychology held in Cape Town in July 2012. Results were presented from three doctoral and three masters theses conducted on South African players of Rugby Union under her supervision at Rhodes University over the past eight years. Doctoral students included Dr Vicky Alexander, Dr Sue Clark and Ms Diana Zoccola; Masters students were Mr Mark Horsman, Mr Ian Smith and Ms Thandi Salmon-Godlo. With the exception of Mark Horsman and Ian Smith, all were in attendance at the conference to present their own work. Dr Clifford van Ommen (currently Psychology Clinic Director at Massey University in Auckland New Zealand) was also present as the co-supervisor on Ms Salmon-Godlo’s thesis while he was still at Rhodes University. The statistical analyses were conducted on all studies by Professor Sarah Radloff, of the Department of Statistics at Rhodes University. While not in attendance at the symposium she was a co-author on all the presentations in acknowledgement of her invaluable contribution to this entire research series.
