Mental health and well-being interventions in sport : research, theory and practice / ed. by Gavin Breslin... [et al.]

Breslin, Gavin

Edité par Routledge. London - 2019

Mental health within elite sport has traditionally been ignored, but recent research has shown that competitive sport can seriously undermine mental health and that athletes are exposed to specific stressors that hinder their mental health optimisation. This book provides an indispensable guide for researchers and practitioners wanting to understand and implement sport-based intervention processes. This important book adopts a case study approach, discussing the context of the intervention, its design and implementation, and its evaluation and legacy. With cases on depression, eating disorders, and athletic burnout, the book is designed to provide students and researchers with a cutting-edge overview of the key issues involved in this burgeoning area, while also including cases on how sport itself has been used as a method to improve mental health.
