Sports Psychology Diploma

This course looks at the scientific study of how people act and react in the context of sport and competition and explores how this knowledge can be practically applied.

There is a wide range of context for sport and exercise psychologists in working with individuals, teams, and organisations.  They could be involved with assisting elite athletes to develop mental strategies for competition or applying scientific research findings to motor learning and physiological process to improve performance or training regimes.

They can also use their skills to help coaches and referees with communication and people-management. And their application is not confined to professional sportspeople – their services are just as valid in, for example, helping young people to deal with the demands of sporting participation, encouraging and helping people who want to be fit but are impeded for some reason or even helping cardiac patients in rehabilitation and recovery.

If you are interested in the psychological aspect of competition you will find this course fascinating and invaluable.
