About this title


In this book top British sports psychologists present a broad range of theoretical foundations and discuss their experiences of applying their ideas to sport. In choosing the elite level the sternest test is provided for the psychological approach.
The sports discussed in the four sections of this book range across a wide spectrum of individual and team events. Each chapter characteristically focuses on how a psychological approach has been applied to one or a selected number of sports. * key principles are identified and their effective use in practice is analysed * developments arising from various techniques and recent advances are covered * a broad array of psychological approaches to enhance sporting performance are discussed * illustrates the broad impact psychology can have on sports performance * captures the varied approaches sports psychologists have adopted to assist athletes in their search for success.
Psychology can play a major part in enhancing performance and as such has stimulated much recent interest, gained momentum and become widely recognised as important in improving sports performance. Readers, whether sports psychologists, sport scientists, coaches or students will meet new and sometimes radical ways of applying psychology to sport. The success of this book lies in inviting the readers to consider fresh and invigorating ideas. Foreword by Kevin Hickey.
