KINO 6322: Applied Sport Psychology (UTPB/UTSA)

Students will develop an array of mental training techniques that have been used successfully by athletes and coaches to improve sport performance. How to use each technique as an athlete and teach it as a coach will be the primary objectives. This course takes an educational approach toward performance enhancement, not a clinical one. The mental training techniques include imagery, arousal regulation, somatic and cognitive stress management, concentration and attention control, positive self-talk, and goal setting. Prerequisite: KINO 6320 - Sport Psychology or equivalent.
