Dr. Englar-Carlson’s scholarly interest in sport focuses on role of gender, and specifically masculinity on health and well-being. Those interests extend to how masculinity influences health associated behavior and decision for athletes. He has also studied how positive psychology intersects with masculinity, including the application of strength-based approaches to understanding how we view athletes, their behavior, and how athletes themselves find positivity within their sport. His other areas of scholarly inquiry focus on how masculinity influences well-being, interpersonal relationships, and self-identity. This exploration extends to how men ask and receive assistance from the helping professions, and on working from a positive psychology-informed strength-based model of practice.
