Mental Skills Training
Who am I?
As part of the Sport Psychology curriculum at BSU, students in the program are expected to develop a working relationship with an athletic team in the community. Throughout the process, she will be supervised throughout this process by Dr. Lindsey Blom (email@example.com). Dr. Blom is a professor of Sport and Exercise Psychology and a certified consultant with the Association of Applied Sport Psychology.
What is Sport Psychology?
Applied sport psychology is the study and use of psychological concepts of human performance in order to help athletes regularly perform at their best and enjoy the sport performance process.
What would the team sessions look like?
- Doing team building activities to increase the cohesion on the team
- Helping athletes understand the concept of emotional control and activation prior to races (over-activation= being too excited/nervous; under-activation= lack of concern about performance/low energy) and teaching them skills to help them reach achieve optimal activation
- Imagery to help athletes picture a successful upcoming performance
- Concentration strategies to assist with focus
These will not be individual sessions. I will discuss these topics in a group/team setting. Individual consultations can be available per an email request (firstname.lastname@example.org).
