This book offers a radical alternative to the cognitive and cognitive-behavioural approaches that have dominated sport psychology, and is the first to systematically apply existential psychological theory and phenomenological method to sport psychology.

This much-needed alternative framework for the discipline of applied sport psychology connects to many of the real and most significant challenges faced by sports performers during their careers and beyond, and bridges the gap that still exists between the real needs of sport performers and what is delivered by traditional sport psychology

Existential psychology aims to assist athletes in their personal growth so that as they develop their physical strengths through sports coaching, they also become a stronger person, and are therefore more likely to achieve their true sporting potential. Existential Psychology and Sport outlines an approach that can be used to add something of depth, substance and academic rigour to sport psychology in applied settings beyond the confines of mental skills training and good listening skills.

About the Author:

Mark Nesti is Reader in Sport Psychology at York St John College, University of Leeds, UK. A British Association of Sport and Exercise Science (BASES) accredited sport psychologist since 1990, he has worked with numerous professional, elite and serious recreational sport performers mostly in football, tennis, skating, motor racing and cricket.

Review:

'...I did not expect a book on sport to be as substantive, scholarly, and absorbing as I found this one. Mark Nesti's book is admirably packed with clear and cogent discussions on the foundations of existential psychology and philosophy which lead gracefully into useful examples of real-life application.' - Kirk J Schneider, Sport & Exercise Psychology Review Vol 2, Jan 2006
