Sport psychology : building a bright tomorrow by Linda K Bunker( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a need to provide practical applications of psychology to improve the quality of performance and the meaningfulness of participation in sports. The scientific and research-based foundations for sport psychology must be acknowledged and expanded. Sport psychologists should provide to coaches and athletes services that offer sound educational programs and coping skills, as well as a variety of therapeutic strategies. Problems involving athletes include: (1) Young athletes, to be a part of school life, must have the fundamental skills to be competitive academically as well as athletically; (2) Athletes competing in the "minor" sports often suffer from the same anxiety, fear, academic and personal stress faced by athletes participating in the "major" team sports; (3) The recruiting activities of coaches for college team sports can elicit traumatic reactions from young athletes; (4) The increased activity of women in competitive sports causes new stressors in the lives of girls; and (5) Coaches and officials, as well as young athletes, are increasingly subject to burnout.

Staying in the sweet spot : how elite level golfers engage in, structure, and experience practice throughout extended careers by Dirk M Downing( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The path to expertise has been quantified on several occasions (Ericsson, Krampe, and Tesch-Römer, 1993; Ericsson 2001; Ericsson [and] Charness, 1994; Ericsson 2008) as well as explored through qualitative retrospective methods (Bloom 1985; Kreiner, Phillips, [and] Orlick 1993; Hayman et. al. 2014). However, little research has investigated the experience of elite performers as they attempt to maximize their performance over time. The purpose of this study was to examine how elite golfers think about, structure, and experience practice intended to maximize performance throughout a long career. The researcher utilized a phenomenological approach to explore the lived experience of five PGA Tour players as they reflected on their practice experience thus far. The central themes found were: a) tailoring practice, b) achieving balance, c) staying engaged, d) being proactive. The core thematic findings spring from two results: 1. The most effective practice for elite golfers are highly individualized, and 2. effective practice for these players is reached when they proactively tailor their approach to pursue appropriate balance and achieve consistent engagement. These findings may benefit golfers, golf coaches, and applied sport psychology practitioners. Theoretical implications and possibilities for future research are discussed

Examining the efficacy of positive psychology interventions for reducing symptoms of burnout among NCAA Division I athletic trainers by Paul Frederick Knell( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study sought to examine the efficacy of three positive psychology interventions (i.e. Three Good Things in Life, Using Signature Strengths in a New Way, and Peer Support) for reducing symptoms of burnout and enhancing well-being. An additional objective was to determine which intervention participants perceived as most effective. This study employed multiple case study methods, utilizing both quantitative and qualitative methods. This study consisted of five athletic trainers (2 graduate assistant athletic trainers and 3 full-time athletic trainers). The Maslach Burnout Inventory was used to assess the severity of participant's burnout symptoms. Qualitative data was collected at five intervals, before engaging in the positive psychology interventions, after each intervention, and two months after the final intervention. Three participants rated the Using Signature Strengths in a New Way intervention as the most effective, where the remaining two participants reported the Three Good Things in Life intervention as most effective. Overall, participants reported that these interventions were an effective means of increasing positive thinking and staff cohesion. Furthermore, participants reported that engaging in positive psychology interventions encouraged them to engage in more self-care activities. The findings of this study suggest that educating athletic trainers on self-care strategies such as positive psychology interventions may reduce risk of burnout and alleviate severity of burnout symptoms
Flourish in sport : exploring the lived experiences of track and field Olympic medalists by Robert Glenn Low( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In was the intent of this study to explore the lived experiences of Olympic Track and Field medal winning athletes. This study interviewed four athletes that participated in the 2012 London Olympic Games. The athletes described their experience of the Olympic games. The researcher then explored these lived experiences for evidence of well-being. The researcher then used a well-being model to compare the experiences of well-being for consistencies. The well-being model was the PERMA model presented by Martin Seligman (2011). The PERMA model consists of five experiential elements, which are Positive Emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and Achievement. This study reported the evidence of these five experiential elements of well-being that emerged from the rich descriptions of the athlete's experience of the Olympic games

Exploring the lived experience of Olympic gold medal champions by Anne Helena Shadle( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this study was to explore the lived experiences of three Olympic gold medal-winning athletes in the sport of Track and Field. Specifically, the study sought to identify the lived experiences, the critical moments, and the intentional responses that influenced each gold medal winning performance. The study uses the qualitative approach of narrative design. Many athletes dreamed and prepared to make the Olympic team and to win an Olympic medal. Only a very few succeeded in standing on the Olympic medal podium. For these athletes, their process of preparation and performance delivery worked. The interest of this study was to explore what were the key factors, beyond talent, physical ability and technical training that impacted their achieving success and winning the medal at the Olympic Games. A cross case analysis was employed to illuminate the findings. When each of the three athletes walked out of the tunnel, onto the Olympic stage, we saw how in that moment they took control of their Olympic moment. This is the challenge for every Olympic athlete. There is evidence from the narratives that suggest, "Controlling the Olympic Moment" was the ultimate critical moment, and it did not start when they entered the Olympic stadium. The athletes shared intimate understandings, found within the crevices of the lived experiences at the Olympic Games. Either the athlete controls the environment or the environment controls the athlete. The athletes were prepared, they were experienced in making autonomous decisions, they were intrinsically motivated and determined, they recognized the critical challenge in the moment, and they took control. Additionally evidence was identified in the athletes' reported experiences that are consistent with, and reflect key elements of Self-Determination Theory and the Flourish: PERMA model. This research suggests that "Controlling the Olympic Moment" uncovers an entirely different configuration and context for examining Olympic athletes' experiences, as well as other high performing/intense environments for athletes
Values driven delivery : a qualitative case study exploration of the experience in an NCAA division 1 holistic integrated sport psychology program by Katie McLean( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Self-affirmation theory states each person has a self-system. This system is motivated to maintain optimal self-integrity, which is restored when people re-affirm their core values (Steele, 1988). Values, therefore, play a key role in our behaviors and motivation. From a sport psychology service standpoint, Poczwardowski, Sherman, and Ravizza (2004) understand values as one of five foundational elements that define professional philosophy. Many research-practitioners shifted towards a holistic sport psychology (HSP) approach, emphasizing athletic performance and personal development (Anderson et al., 2001; Bond, 2002: Danish & Nellen, 1997; Friesen & Orlick, 2010, 2011; Miller & Kerr, 2002; Owton et al., 2014; Ravizza, 2002; Wrisberg et al., 2012). With this approach, a sport psychology professional's (SPP's) role includes understanding whole person development to facilitate performance enhancement (Bond, 2002; Friesen & Orlick, 2010). The purpose of this study was to examine ways in which a nationally recognized mental performance staff provides HSP services integrated within an NCAA Division I athletics program. Specifically this study hoped to understand how personal values and self-integrity impact delivery services to teams from many role perspectives. The sample consisted of five mental performance coaches (MPCs) and 28 coaches, athletes, and support staff who worked directly with those MPCs. Findings support six consistent themes across the mental performance staff. Additional across-group themes were constructed based on supplemental group experiences. These findings support some of the same findings with Poczwardowski and Sherman (2011) in relation to roles, operating standards, personal growth and authenticity. Specifically, the emphasis on balance between a "friend" role and "professional" role, and how this connects to support. This study adds to the field in terms of how authenticity connects to sense of purpose and delivery. These findings also support Fifer et al. (2008), in that an integrated model builds trust between individuals and mental performance coach, as well as trust in holistic sport psychology services. Athletes, coaches, and support staff involved shared experiences' valuing the comprehensive support across their programs, as well as how this positively impacted their experience with performance enhancement. Findings offer interpretation for SPPs and athletics departments collectively in understanding the range of roles integrated HSP delivery services can provide, including comprehensive support for performance enhancement.

An exploration of self-determination theory in individual track and field Olympic medalists from the United States of America at the 2012 London Games by Derek R Marr( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this study was to investigate the psychosocial aspects of the reported lived experience of Olympic medal winning athletes by the United States Track and Field athletes in the 2012 London Olympic Games, specifically focusing on an exploration of evidence of the elements of self-determination theory. This study utilized a qualitative approach and an interpretive phenomenological design to answer the research questions. Semi-structured interviews were used to obtain in-depth data about the three participant's lived experience of winning an Olympic medal at the 2012 Olympic games in London. These interviews were transcribed and significant statements were coded. The codes were then clustered to form subordinate and ultimately master level themes. The master level themes that emerged from the lived experience of all participants in the study were 1) Support, 2) Psychological Factors and 3) Motivation. Interpretive phenomenological analysis was used to compare the resultant themes of this study to the theoretical framework. This inductive process resulted in consistencies between the results of this study that and the pre-existing theoretical framework, thus supporting and strengthening self-determination and its sub-theory of organismic integration theory (Deci and Ryan, 1985). The results of this study are useful for athletes, coaches, sport leaders and anyone that is interested in performing their best leading up to and during their performance
Exploring the lived psychosocial experience of elite National Football League (NFL) players by Pat Ivey( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this study was to explore the psychosocial experiences of elite NFL players. Many athletes dreamed and prepared to make it to the NFL as a starter, and to participate in the Pro Bowl or Super Bowl. Only a very few succeed. For these athletes, their process of preparation and performance delivery, has worked. This study was interested in exploring what were the key factors beyond talent and beyond physical/technical training that impacted their achieving success, and becoming a starter and making it to the Pro Bowl/ Super Bowl. What was it that these athletes thought or did, at the Point of Attack, when the ball was snapped? Three elite NFL professional football players participated in this qualitative study with a narrative research design. The narratives collected from the three players provided rich and intimate personal stories related to each of their lived experiences. Specifically, the intent of this study was to explore the personal experiences of these athletes, their thoughts, motivations, and intentions, at the Point of Attack, when the ball was snapped, to begin each play. The study also sought to identify evidence in the athletes' lived experiences that reflected the principles of Self-Determination Theory (SDT), and the Flourish (PERMA) model. This study also explored the importance of team chemistry as an influence in these athletes' experience. But, the primary focus of the study was what was happening in their psychosocial experience at the Point of Attack. And, what was found was profound. These athletes reported their thinking at the moment, at the Point of Attack, was "It's all about me right now!" and "I play for the name on my back!" Foundations and backgrounds for these understandings were uncovered. Implications for coach's education and field application were presented. There was substantial evidence from the athletes' reports and multiple described experiences that would represent the key components of SDT: relatedness, competence, and autonomy. There were several instances that would represent the key components of Flourish through the PERMA model (Positive emotions, Engagement, positive Relationships, Meaning, and Achievement). Also, reported and described were multiple experiences that would represent the importance of team chemistry achieved through team cohesion and team environment. These athletes reported, "It's all about me right now!" and "I play for the name on my back!"
