Getting in the right mood is seen by many as an important part of mental preparation
for athletic competition and the success or failure to do so is often presented by athletes as an
attribution to explain performance outcomes. The purpose of this presentation is to move on
from conceptual and measurement issues to look at the
implications of mood assessments for practitioners. First, the potential uses of mood profiling are
reviewed, primarily from an applied perspective although new research directions are suggested.
The focus then switches to mood management, where the current state of knowledge on the
subject is discussed and new data is presented on the popularity and perceived effectiveness of
mood regulation strategies utilised by athletes.
