Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

The paper addresses topics such as confidence and motivation, goal setting, resilience, leadership and group dynamics with a focus on comparing and contrasting how these psycho-social phenomena have been theorised, studied and applied in the contexts of sport, health and human performance. The paper will examine theories and models that have broad relevance across the degree. In doing so, the paper ensures an interdisciplinary aspect to the degree, while focusing on psycho-social theories and models of relevance to working as a professional in sport, active recreation, exercise and health.
