There's more to getting into the right headspace for the big game or event than trying to think like a winner. Modern sports psychologists emphasize advanced strategies like biofeedback and neurofeedback, while encouraging the use of mindfulness and other mental health techniques.
In Sports Psychology for Dummies, 2nd Edition, a team of athletic performance experts and psychologists walks you through the mental side of intense competition and training. From the importance of focus to the tactics designed to restore and improve confidence after a loss, you'll explore ideas such as goal setting, self-perception, and self-talk. This book also covers:
- Personalized plans for athletic success
- Real-life examples of sports psychology changing the athletic experience in different sports
- The wide variety of careers available in the field of sports psychology and how to get started in them
Ideal for athletes, parents of student athletes, and coaches looking for ways to improve performance both on and off the field, Sports Psychology for Dummies is also the perfect resource for anyone interested in a career in this rapidly growing and evolving field.
