Taking a refreshingly different approach to the subject, this newtextbook uses original case studies of psychological support workwith individual athletes and groups to illustrate the underlyingtheory and inform the reader of cutting edge practice in the field.It addresses 'real world' issues and helps the studentunderstand the problems and challenges that the sport psychologistfaces and is employed to resolve. The book begins by exploring the use of case studies as aprofessional method for disseminating applied knowledge andpractice in sport psychology. The remaining chapters constitute thecore of the book: the case studies themselves. Each case studydemonstrates scientific rigour in reporting the backgroundinformation, initial assessment, intervention and monitoring,evaluation of the intervention, and also considers consultanteffectiveness through reflective practice. The chapters alsocontain summaries and an accompanying set of questions forstudents. Written by a team of experienced practitioners this book showshow sport psychology actually works in practice. As such it willprove invaluable to students of sport psychology in both sport andexercise science and psychology programmes. It will also be anextremely useful resource for coaches and sports professionalsundergoing training in sport psychology.
