Mental skills interventions have become a staple way for applied sport psychologists to aid performers. In fact, they can bring about multiple outcomes/benefits for their clients. Over the years research conducted at Bangor University has been influencial in shaping applied sport psychologist's practice. In this module you will gain a critical appreciation for the contemporary research literature primarily surrounding self-talk and imagery. This is important because it will enable you to have a firm foundation to provide evidence-based mental skills, and hopefully more effective, interventions.
Being an evidence-based practitioner is key to providing an effective service to clients / performers. Furthermore, as a scientific discipline, psychology is underpinned by theory. Based on the adage that there is "nothing as practical as a good theory", this module will place emphasis on relevant theories and research based literature pertinent to the following topics:
- Information processing differences
Of note, while research is covered throughout the module, it is discussed from the perspective of "so how is this helpful for performers?" with students fully involved in getting a practical insight in to mental skills interventions.
