      Today's Price £156.24



      Product Description

      The majority of sport psychology research to-date has been underpinned and driven by a secular perspective. There is an urgent need for sport psychologists to better understand the relevance of Christian faith in athletes' sporting experiences and day-to-day lives in order to improve their performance and wellbeing. Sport, Psychology and Christianity is the first book to consider the relationship between sport psychology provision and Christianity from a welfare and performance perspective.

      Bringing together contributions from leading scholars in the field, the book includes chapters on:

      • The role of faith in sport injury rehabilitation
      • Christian belief and resilience during injury
      • The pitfalls of perfectionism in sport
      • Collaboration between sport psychologist and club chaplain
      • Ethical considerations when working with spiritual athletes
      • Reflective practice in sport psychology consultancy

      Offering a holistic approach to improving athlete welfare and performance where faith and spirituality are core tenets of wellbeing, this volume is a critical and timely resource for students, researchers and practitioners working in sport psychology or sport and spirituality or religion, sports chaplaincy and allied roles and professions.
