Exercise Psychology ESP320

Launceston

Note:

Introduction

Psychological factors are recognised as having an important part to play in the attainment of success in all achievement contexts. Increasingly, there is a demand for health professionals to deliver non-clinical programmes designed to complement and integrate with other health care programs. These non-clinical programmes target a broad spectrum of contexts from learning skills to enhance performance in sport to techniques designed to help the resiliency of students to manage everyday life. This unit examines the basis and application of some techniques to an exercise environment.
