Psychology of Effective Coachi
Psychology of Effective Coaching 2023-24
School Of Human And Behavioural Sciences
Module - Semester 2
The module will extensively examine the coach/athlete relationship in terms of closeness (I like my coach/athlete), commitment (I am committed to the coach/athlete relationship), complementarity (I feel responsive to my coach/athlete behaviours), and co-orientated views (are both parties in agreement with what they think of each other). Addressing between and within person discrepancies will play a very large role throughout this module. Further, for your case study it is expected that you will seek out an athlete and a coach who are not working well with each other. It is important that you identify and approach such a dydad early as you will have to interview them, observe them and collect some quantitative data.
-threshold -Reasonable grasp of research principles in effective coaching and an understanding in applying theoretically driven interventions for different performers in different situations. Basic evidence and principles will be applied to the case study. -good -Display good knowledge and understanding of research principles in effective coaching, showing good capacity to address and formulate applied interventions. Some evidence of knowledge of the research covered will be displayed. -excellent -Provide a deep knowledge and understanding of research in effective coaching and has an excellent capacity to address and formulate suitable theoretically driven interventions. The student will display a very good and in depth use of the triangulation of methods used in formulating their intervention.
- Critically understand the coach athlete relationships at the within person level (e.g., where am I and where would I like to be) and the between person level (i.e., where am I and where would the coach like me to be [and vice versa]).
- Interpret data from a triangulation of methods (qualitative, quantitative, and observational) and propose an effective intervention based on your own results.
