    Applied sport, exercise, and performance psychology practice has diversified considerably over the years, as consultants have explored various theoretical models to guide them in helping their clients. Applied Sport, Exercise, and Performance Psychology: Current Approaches to Helping Clients provides in-depth and critical coverage, from a global perspective, of the common approaches practitioners now use with clients.

    Chapters are supplemented with case studies showing the approaches in action. The text explores topics such as:

    • Cognitive behavioural approaches
    • Psychodynamics approaches
    • Family systems therapy approaches
    • Mindfulness approaches
    • Practitioner training and development
    • Cultural considerations in practice
    • Evidence-based practice

    This text is a vital resource for students in applied sport psychology courses, sport and exercise science courses, and psychology and counselling courses. It is also an invaluable read for practicing applied sport, exercise, and performance psychologists, as well as coaches

    and parents with some background in psychology.
