CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Taking a refreshingly different approach to the subject, this new textbook
uses original case studies of psychological support work with individual
athletes and groups to illustrate the underlying theory and inform the reader
of cutting edge practice in the field. It addresses ‘real world’ issues and
helps the student understand the problems and challenges that the sport
psychologist faces and is employed to resolve.
The book begins by exploring the use of case studies as a professional method
for disseminating applied knowledge and practice in sport psychology. The
remaining chapters constitute the core of the book: the case studies
themselves. Each case study demonstrates scientific rigour in reporting the
background information, initial assessment, intervention and monitoring,
evaluation of the intervention, and also considers consultant effectiveness
through reflective practice. The chapters also contain summaries and an
accompanying set of questions for students.
Written by a team of experienced practitioners this book shows how sport
psychology actually works in practice. As such it will prove invaluable to
students of sport psychology in both sport and exercise science and psychology
programmes. It will also be an extremely useful resource for coaches and sports
professionals undergoing training in sport psychology.
