The majority of sport psychology research to date has been underpinned and driven by a secular perspective. There is an urgent need for sport psychologists to better understand the relevance of Christian faith in athletes’ sporting experiences and day-to-day lives in order to improve their performance and well-being. Sport, Psychology and Christianity is the first book to consider the relationship between sport psychology provision and Christianity from a welfare and performance perspective. Bringing together contributions from leading scholars in the field, the book includes chapters on: The role of faith in sport injury rehabilitation Christian belief and resilience during injury The pitfalls of perfectionism in sport Collaboration between sport psychologist and club chaplain Ethical considerations when working with spiritual athletes Reflective practice in sport psychology consultancy Offering a holistic approach to improving athlete welfare and performance where faith and spirituality are core tenets of well-being, this volume is a critical and timely resource for students, researchers and practitioners working in sport psychology; sport and spirituality; or religion, sports chaplaincy and allied roles and professions.

Sports have taken on tremendous importance in the world in which we live. Their social significance - economic, political, and personal - both nationally and internationally is unprecedented. What may not be so immediately obvious is the sociological nature of sports. Sport offers one of the most visible public arenas for understanding the role that 'immortality' plays in individual action, group dynamics, and with audiences and the media. Following a brief introduction to the sociology of sport, Leonard explores these dimensions of the sporting world through the idea of the 'post-self' - how individuals regard themselves and want to be remembered by the public. From the individual psyche to the global arena of sports, this book features vivid examples and quotations from star athletes, coaches, and the media, offering poignant insights into the sporting world and about individuals and society.

"Sport, physical activity and play are key constituents of social life, impacting Athletes routinely use psychological skills and interventions for performance enhancement but, perhaps surprisingly, not always to assist in recovery from injury. This book demonstrates the ways in which athletes and practitioners can transfer psychological skills to an injury and rehabilitation setting, to enhance recovery and the well-being of the athlete. Drawing on the very latest research in sport and exercise psychology, this book explores key psychological concepts relating to injury, explaining typical psychological responses to injury and psychological aspects of rehabilitation. Using case studies in every chapter to highlight the day-to-day reality of working with injured athletes, it introduces a series of practical interventions, skills and techniques, underpinned by an evidence-base, with a full explanation of how each might affect an athlete's recovery from injury. The Psychology of Sport Injury and Rehabilitation emphasises the importance of an holistic, multi-disciplinary approach to sports injury and rehabilitation. No other book examines the psychological aspects of both sports injury and the rehabilitation process, and therefore this is an essential resource for students, scholars and practitioners working in sport psychology, sports therapy, sports medicine or coaching"--

Integrate physical activity into feminist therapy! This book explores the healing use of exercise and sport as a helpful adjunct to therapy from several therapeutic orientations within the feminist context. It looks at the ways that feminist orientations challenge the mind-body dichotomy and explores the benefits of integrating physical activity, exercise, and sport into therapy. From the editors: “The contributors to this book display a diversity of theory and research approaches, including the integration of the exercise/sport sciences and exercise physiology. This volume is unique in that there has been comparatively little written about the use of exercise in therapy even though exercise is a wonderful and useful intervention tool in the treatment of depression, stress, anxiety disorders, and chronic pain. This book illustrates how exercise can be applied to inpatient and outpatient populations, to the neurotic, and to the chronically mentally ill. Exercise can reduce the incidence of chronic diseases, including diabetes and hypertension, as well as address physical problems such as obesity. Exercise can give one a sense of mastery and self-confidence. As our authors suggest, exercise must be tailored to specific issues and client populations and diagnoses, level of functioning, age, overall health, and cultural context must all be taken into account.” Exercise and Sport in Feminist Therapy: Constructing Modalities and Assessing Outcomes examines: the theory supporting the use of physicality to enhance various types of psychotherapy—psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, constructivist, narrative, and organismic/systems practical methods of integrating exercise into varied orientations an exercise program for women with fibromyalgia a way to use exercise to enhance rehabilitation from breast cancer the use of exercise in group therapy for women suffering with chronic mental illness the “tend and befriend” model, which can help clients to meet their exercise program responsibilities

The historians can debate it, but there's more than enough evidence to conclude that 1968 is one of the single-most chaotic, violent, and transformative years in the history of the United States. At the very least, it was the most transcendent 12-month period of the 20th century. It was a year marked by the escalation of the Vietnam War; the rise and the roar of rebellion; the continuation of the nation's seemingly never-ending division regarding race; the transfer of power in the White House from the fractured Democrats to the Richard Nixon-led Republicans; and the unspeakably tragic murders of Senator Robert F. Kennedy and civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In 1968, it was like America was tethered to a burning fuse and you knew the detonation was coming, you just weren't sure when. Yet through it all, most Americans persevered, just like Americans always had. They fought through the difficult and downright scary times and continued on in their pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness, the very definition of the American dream. And for many, sports played an integral role in the quest for normalcy in a world seemingly gone mad, a veritable coping mechanism that helped provide an escape from the tensions and upheaval that permeated the country. America needed sports more than ever, and sports delivered brilliantly in its time of need. Therein lies the very essence of Sal Maiorana's historical novel, 1968 - Amid the crucible of war, revolt, and tragedy, sports helped soothe America's psyche. America needed its diversions in 1968, just as it had during two world wars, and just as it had during the Great Depression. In times of trouble, there have always been sporting events to help ease the American psyche. As George Will once wrote, "Sport enables us, for a few hours, to step out of the river of time and into a pastime." And long before cable and satellite television existed, and only select sporting events were available on the standard 26-inch RCA or Motorola color consoles of the day, it was sports columnist Jack McDonald's job to take Americans into the stadiums and the arenas and the locker rooms to tell the stories of the games, coaches and players in the slick pages of the nationally-renowned weekly magazine, SportsWorld. This is the story of one fictional family, inserted into the real-life events that took place in 1968. Through Jack and his family, older readers will re-live - and younger readers will become aware of - why this was such a dramatic and significant year in United States history. But also, much like sports helped take our minds off the horrific aftermath of the 9/11 tragedy, this book will shine a light on the many magnificent athletic achievements that were somewhat lost amid the crucible of war, revolt, and tragedy that 1968 is rightly, but sadly, remembered for. Because as we have learned throughout history, even in the darkest of times, sports, and fandom, can provide a soothing bliss.

"Although sport psychology did not fully mature as a recognized discipline until the 1960s, pioneering psychologists in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, making greater use of empirical research methodologies, sought to understand mental factors that affect athletic performance. Though the psychologists behind the studies described here worked independently of one another and charted their own distinct courses of inquiry, their works, taken together, provided the corpus of precedents and foundations on which the modern field of sport psychology was built. The essays collected in this volume tell the stories not only of these psychologists and their subjects but of the social and academic context that surrounded them, shaping and being shaped by their ideas"--Provided by publisher.
