The contribution of sport and performance psychology to coaching

de Prazer, Vicki, Moyle, Gene Margaret, Lloyd, Michael, & Jauncey, Phil (2012) The contribution of sport and performance psychology to coaching. In 2012 International Congress on Coaching Psychology - The Contribution of Psychology to Coaching, 11 - 12 May 2012, Sydney NSW. (Unpublished)


The role of the sport and performance psychologists offers an historical base to many of the conceptualizations, strategies and tools currently utilized by coaches and coaching psychologists. The world of elite sport and performance offers little room for negativity, little tolerance for cognitions, emotions and behaviours that are less than optimal; in an environment that sets high expectation, makes obvious comparisons and is driven by competition; all within inflexible timelines and with harsh consequences for those that don’t make the grade. From this context the presenters will reflect on their development, challenges and expertise; offering ideas and tools that translate into the coaching arena.
