Exploring the Psychological Aspects of Sport Injury (Free worskhop)

Sport injury is relatively common among sport and exercise participants, and while the physical impact of injury is often easy to recognise, the psychological impact is not understood. In this free course, Exploring the psychological aspects of sport injury, you will examine the relationship between injury and psychological factors. You will look at the link between injury and psychology at two distinct points – before an injury has occurred and then following an injury. First, you will consider the psychological factors that may increase the likelihood of sustaining a sport injury (pre-injury), and then you will consider psychological reactions to the incidence of a sport injury (post-injury). The course will also allow you to examine how sport and exercise psychology can be used both to help minimise the risk of injury and to help people cope better with sport injury rehabilitation.

The course draws on a wealth of case study and audio-visual material to bring the psychology of sport injury to life. By advancing your understanding of the psychological aspects of sport injury, you will develop a more holistic understanding of sport injury that will aid your interactions with injured sport and exercise participants and any injury experiences you might have in the future.
