My description: This class was an introductory level starter to understanding the key concepts of Sports Psychology. One will learn what it takes to become a Sports Psychologist, what they do on a day-to-day basis, crucial concepts used on patients, and practical application skills.
|The course is intended to investigate the science of Sport Psychology from its theoretical foundation to its practical application. The perspectives of the course range from the study of individual differences and sport behavior to the impact of social influences and group dynamics on sport. Specific topics include: psychological variables; personality and individual differences in athletes; skill acquisition; and, an examination of the role of exercise and sport across the life span. crosslisted with SPT 345.|
Key Point I learned: One of the biggest things I learned was how to calm your nerves in a beneficial way before competition. There are several ways one can go about this, but this class equipped you with all types of anxiety relievers for even the most nervous athlete.
Prior Work: Below I have included one of my several study guides I used for a test in Sports Psychology. The questions/topics start out blank when you receive the study guide and you are responsible for answering the questions yourself. This is my filled out study guide for one of the four tests we had all semester.
