In this course, students are introduced to the field of sport and exercise psychology through theory and application. Strategies and techniques that sport psychologists and mental performance consultants (MPC) employ to help athletes achieve and maintain peak performance are explored. Ultimately, students are assisted in developing a range of psychological skills that are broadly transferable to all performance tasks (e.g., sport, exercise, academic testing, career testing), helping them achieve consistent peak performance.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.
