A Case-Based Approach

Taking a refreshingly different approach to the subject, this new textbook uses original case studies of psychological support work with individual athletes and groups to illustrate the underlying theory and inform the reader of cutting edge practice in the field. It addresses ‘real world’ issues and helps the student understand the problems and challenges that the sport psychologist faces and is employed to resolve. The book begins by exploring the use of case studies as a professional method for disseminating applied knowledge and practice in sport psychology. The remaining chapters constitute the core of the book: the case studies themselves. Each case study demonstrates scientific rigour in reporting the background information, initial assessment, intervention and monitoring, evaluation of the intervention, and also considers consultant effectiveness through reflective practice. The chapters also contain summaries and an accompanying set of questions for students. Written by a team of experienced practitioners this book shows how sport psychology actually works in practice. As such it will prove invaluable to students of sport psychology in both sport and exercise science and psychology programmes. It will also be an extremely useful resource for coaches and sports professionals undergoing training in sport psychology.

Inner Game Golf

die Idee vom Selbstcoacing

Golf ist eine flüchtige Angelegenheit. Das gilt für Einsteiger wie Profis. So gut der letzte Schlag gewesen sein mag - nie gibt es Gewissheit über den nächsten. Diese Situation ist typisch für das Golfspiel. Und man kann ihr auf zweierlei Weise begegnen. Wir können nach vermeintlichen äußeren Sicherheiten suchen, in dem wir uns die Technik des "richtigen Schwungs" erarbeiten. Die Fülle der damit verbundenen TO DO's können aber schnell zu Überforderung und Verkrampfung führen. Anders bei dem in diesem Buch beschriebenen Weg. Dort geht es um die Entwicklung einer inneren Sicherheit, die von äußeren Situationen unabhängiger macht. Der Schlüssel dazu liegt in einer verstärkten Aufmerksamkeit für den eigenen Schwung und im Erkennen des eigenen "inneren Spiels". Mit lebendigen Beispielen und starken Argumenten zeigt Gallwey den Weg zum Selbstcoaching auf, einer Methode, die nicht nur das Leben auf dem Golfplatz leichter macht. Dieses Golfbuch ist im englischsprachigen Raum längst ein Klassiker.

To perform well in today's highly competitive world where technical skills have been advanced to an unprecedented degree, a singer must be able to handle incredible pressure within the performing arena; his or her ability to deal with this stress will often determine whether he or she will succeed. Why, then, do singers with less technical skill sometimes out-perform stars? Why do some stars suddenly stop performing? What is that mysterious factor that makes an electric performance? Consistent, competent performances do not depend solely upon superior vocal skills, nor are they a matter of luck. On the contrary, the best performances result from a combination of mental attitude, concrete performing skills, and excellent technical skills in that order. Yet most singers have never had the opportunity to acquire the essential skills that make for a successful career. Written as a self-help manual for singers at all levels of expertise, Power Performance for Singers is designed to teach performing artists, and especially singers, how to experience elite performance at their level. The skills outlined in this book will help singers use what they have, to enjoy their voices during performance, and to perform consistently to the best of their present ability.

Eine Einführung in mannschaftspsychologische Themenbereiche zielt auf die Frage der Mannschaftsharmonie und Konfliktbewältigung.

Wie kann sportbezogene Ängstlichkeit von Kindern abgebaut werden? Seit Mitte der 70er Jahre erlebte das Phänomen Angst im Sport einen Boom an Zuwendung in der psychologischen Forschung. Erhebliche Lücken der Grundlagenforschung bestehen allerdings nach wie vor in der theoretischen Fundierung und empirischen Erprobung von Interventionsverfahren, die sich dem Problemfeld sportbezogener Ängstlichkeit zuwenden. Der Autor bezieht sich auf willenspsychologische Konzepte und entwirft ein integratives Modell der Handlungskontrolle. Diese Modellvorstellungen bilden den Rahmen für die Konzipierung eines Interventionsverfahrens zur Verbesserung der Handlungskontrolle sportbezogen ängstlicher Schüler. Für die mathematisch-statistische Abschätzung von Interventionseffekten wurden in der vorliegenden Arbeit neue Wege gesucht. So konnten im empirischen Teil Aussagen zur Interventionswirkung für jeden einzelnen Schüler getroffen werden.
