Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This practical manual introduces a new concept in applied sport psychology, that is, the need to create specialists in each sporting discipline.

Written by an international team of practising experts, The Sport Psychologistâ??s Handbook begins with an overview of sports psychology and covers the fundamental concepts that a sports psychologist should consider when working with athletes. The most effective interventions are then discussed for a diverse range of over 25 sports, including team and individual sports, combat sports, equestrian sports, motor sports and winter and water sports. Interventions for athletes with disabilities are also discussed.

This is the first text to provide interventions for so many sports in one comprehensive volume. It is an indispensable guide for practising sports psychologists and postgraduate students of sports psychology, and will also be of interest to coaches and managers of athletes.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By kevin holpe on February 1, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is divided in two parts: 1. An overview of applied sport psychology (intervention with coaches, family, athlete, etc.), and 2. Consulting with specific sports (basket, soccer, ice hockey, cricket, handball, gymnastic, athletics, tennis, golf, rowing, figure skating... and more and more...). The Sport Psychologist's Handbook is a must have practical manual for applied sport psychologist, athletes, and coaches... The contributors are well-know sport psychogist, and they have experience consulting in different sports.

Definitly, I recommend this book if you are a sport psychologist...

Format: Hardcover
With this book, I also had purchased the "Test Youe EQ : Find Out How Emotionally Intelligent You Really Are" and the "Counselling Athletes : Applying Reversal Theory".

Actually these books have been used by my son who are doing his Master Degree in the Psychology in Thailand (a small country in Southeast Asia). His aim is to go through the Sport Psychology Knowhow which is nothing in our Thailand at present. Not too many people know about what the Sport Psychology can do to their Emotional Enhancement and sports.

I had asked my son on what he get from these books, he told me that;

"Dear dad, all I can say is all the books are great and very useful. They become my bible for what I'm doing right now."

One thing I observe from my son is he is better in controlling his emotion and love his subject of "Psychology" much more than I have
expected before he entered this course. These books may contribute a great assistance to widenning his eyes and also his metal thinking.

Thank you for the writers, at least with your books, you help me guide a man to go for his dream. Thanks
