"Pure Sport: Practical Sport Psychology explains in everyday language the whys and wherefores of contemporary sport psychology - pinpointing what works and what doesn't when it comes to performance enhancement." "Pure Sport goes back to basics by highlighting practical concerns for those who are involved with competitive sport at every level - from junior club to international elite. Drawing on their considerable experience as both academic researchers and applied sport psychologists, the authors present a powerful array of techniques for channelling and harnessing mental skills with the goal of improving sporting performance. The interventions that they describe have all been tried and tested in competitive settings, but here, for the first time, the psychological techniques underlying them are brought together in a single volume that uniquely blends sound theory with good practice."--BOOK JACKET.
