Description

Psychosocial Strategies for Athletic Training provides a user-friendly introduction to the application and practical use of psychosocial theories and techniques. Featuring contributions from an expert team of authors, all specialists in the field, readers will develop an understanding of the research that underlies practice and will see how sports psychology is applied in clinical practice. With activities to help apply theory to practice, including case studies with critical-thinking questions, directed role-play activities with follow-up reflection questions, development of psychological skill ‘scripts’ for use with injured athletes/patients, and out-of-class activities, the text addresses a wide range of psychological interventions such as mental imagery, positive self-talk, and relaxation techniques and offers information about not only the physical rehabilitation regimen injured athletes need, but also the psychological and psychosocial support they need to recover from injuries.
