Sport Psychology for the Athlete and Non-Athlete
If you are an elite athlete-or aspire to become one-The Psychology of Performance will help you better benefit from your practice and identify the mental and emotional approaches that will best support your performance goals over the long term. But whether or not you have any connection to the world of sports, this course will help you achieve your personal goals in your chosen field of performance. As Dr. O'Connor explains, the work of a sport psychologist is not defined by sport, but by the science of performance psychology, the mental aspects of superior performance in settings where excellence is central-often sports, but also the performing arts, business, high-risk professions such as the military, and many other fields.
In Dr. O'Connor's work and in this course, sport is a lens through which to view the issues of practice, anxiety, injury, confidence, and more-issues that apply to any performer. And, if you are the parent of a young athlete or performer, Dr. O'Connor will help you understand this journey from your child's perspective and how to best support him or her along the way, too.
In these 24 exciting half-hour lectures, Dr. O'Connor explains why:
Practice might not lead to peak performance,
Excellence in anything isn't easy or natural,
Talent is not necessary (and can even be a disadvantage),
You are not limited by genetics,
Positive thinking can get in your way, and
Being a perfectionist can help you-and hurt you.
