Training professionals in the Practice of Sport Psychology



Edited by John M. Silva III (former College at Brockport faculty member), Jonathan N. Metzler, Bart Lerner..

Training Professionals in the Practice of Sport Psychology provides a detailed look at all facets of the educa­tion process from training requirements to certification to developing a mental training program. Intended for those seeking to become sport psychology professionals, and unlike any other counseling text, this book supplies students with the information, tools, and essential pre­paratory steps needed to become a fully certified sport psychologist.

This is an essential graduate text for applied sport psychology and professional practice courses in sport psychology.

"The contents of this book are truly unique, as no other resource of its kind exists. Many of us who have taught applied sport psychology graduate courses and worked with athletes would have benefitted considerably if such a text had existed previously. Fortunately, it does now. And, fortunately, sport psychologists with interests in directly applying their knowledge to athletes will benefit considerably in the present and the future." -- From the foreword by Robert N. Singer, professor emeritus, Department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology, University of Florida
