Meets with ESS 4780. This course examines the psychological factors involved in sport-related injuries and the rehabilitation process. Relevant theory and research will be discussed as well as practical applications. Some topics include: stress, responses to injury, mental skills used to manage injury (i.e., goal setting, motivation, confidence), social support, potential problems faced during rehabilitation, and returning to sport after injury. This is a sport psychology course, therefore discussion will not focus on the physiological processes involved in injury.
