3 credits

[Meets the Core Curriculum Writing Practice Requirement] This course will cover psychological components of human performance related to sport and exercise as well as provide students with the foundations of applied sport and exercise psychology (e.g., motivation, communication, anxiety, leadership, and applied psychological skills). Students will learn and practice coaching skills, which are incorporated into intervention techniques that lead people to choose and adhere to a wellness lifestyle based on their own resolutions and visions of their own best self. Discussion will include sport participation and psychological assessment, intervention techniques, and a brief introduction to the predominant research methods used in sport psychology. This course will also cover the psychology of the injured athlete/exerciser, and focus on major theories, research, and application in the field of sport and exercise psychology. This course has particular value to coaches, teachers, psychologists, exercise specialists, and other sport-affiliated professions. (Same as EXSC 3583)
