Abstract

Presented in a user-friendly format, the guide covers key
aspects of sport psychology, including the most effective
methods for enhancing performance and preparing mentally for
important competitions. Integrating up-to-date research findings with real-life events, the authors include psychological principles associated with over 20 sports, including soccer, rugby, tennis, golf, shooting and track and field. Mental imagery is discussed and a wide variety of visualization exercises included. Tips are given to help athletes adopt a positive mental attitude, as well as how to manage fluctuations in mood to maintain consistency in
their performance. Inside Sport Psychology demonstrates how to apply psychology in a range of sport settings by offering an accessible and evidence-based approach. Explaining what works and what doesn't, it is an ideal resource for athletes and coaches wishing to incorporate sport psychology into training and competition.
