D‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‌‌esign a PST Program for an Injured Athlete

D‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‌‌esign a PST Program for an Injured Athlete Write a 6-8 page paper (not including title and reference page) that describes an INJURY REHABILITATION performance enhancement training program for an athlete with a specific sport injury, and discuss how your PST plan relates to the research and applied aspects of sport psychology. You may choose to design an PST injury rehab program for an athlete with any sport or exercise injury you like, as long as you create a incorporating important mental skills related to injury recovery in that specific endeavor. You might choose something like the injuries listed below, although these are only a few possible options. Do NOT choose a career-ending injury – keep it simpler than that. An ACL tear in football Shin splints in distance runners A back injury to an Olympic-style weight lifter A torn rotator cuff in a baseball pitcher At the beginning of your paper, you must provide an introduction to the athlete, sport, and injury you have selected. This should resemble a “case study” format, in which you describe all pertinent data relevant to the PST intervention you designed. This may include ‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‌‌personality information, relevant injury history, the specifics of the injury and projected recovery time, etc. You are essentially “creating” a fictitious athlete , although you may certainly model your case after an actual experience you have had personally, been part of, or read about. You must justify the inclusion of each program component – for example, if you decide that goal-setting is an important component in an injury rehab mental training program for a marathon runner, you must support that inclusion with appropriate research on goal setting effectiveness in injury recovery. Once you have determined the skills involved, you will discuss the program’s implementation using the 3-phase suggested by Burton & Raedeke (2009): Education, Acquisition, and Implementation. How will you, as the trainer, and your athlete progress through these 3 phases to make sure your program is effective for the injured athlete? Your paper must include AT LEAST 5 outside academic references from peer-reviewed journals, although you may find that you use many more than that.
