9780415834506: Sport Psychology: The Basics

Sport Psychology: The Basics provides an accessible introduction to the fundamental ideas at the heart of Sport Psychology today. It examines the links between sport participants’ behaviours, their personality and their environment to identify the factors which affect performance. Exploring theory and practice, it uses case studies to illustrate how key areas of theory are applied within a sport psychologist’s practice, answering such questions as:

  • What is sport psychology and what do sport psychologists do?
  • What factors affect sporting performance?
  • Which psychological characteristics are associated with achievement in sport?
  • How can performance be improved by using theory?

With a glossary of key terms, suggestions for further study and ideas for improving performance, Sport Psychology: The Basics is an ideal introduction for students of sport and coaches who would like to know more about how sport psychologists address questions about human behaviour in sport.

From the Back Cover:

Whether it's understanding how a player copes with the pressures of taking a penalty, or how a coach motivates their team, sport psychology helps us to get into the athlete's mind.

In this enlightening overview, the authors integrate biological, social and cognitive approaches to investigate the impact of behaviour, thoughts and feelings on performance and help us comprehend the psychological effects of playing sports.

Whatever your level of study, this wide-ranging introduction will give you a deeper understanding of the effect of key psychological principles on the experience and performance of sports.
