Sport and Performance Psychology - EDPN6018

Year - 2020

Sport coaching is a complex multivariate process that involves the interaction of personal, environmental, and contextual factors. Coaches now recognise the critical role sport and performance psychology plays in athlete development, wellbeing and performance. This unit examines topics such as personality, motivation, performance anxiety, emotions, self-regulation, relationships, mindset, and culture. Greater understanding of these concepts will assist coaches in improving their own and their athletes sporting experiences.
