YEAR 12 HPE TERM 4 2013 - SPORT PSYCHOLOGY

Brianna Norris's comment, February 18, 2014 12:44 PM
This article first talks about motivation, what it is and how important it is. It also discusses the different types of motivation such as, self-determination;how far you want to push yourself and how badly you want something, and what you are going to do to get it. Amotivation: emotional type of motivation where you feel a lack of ability and almost a paralyzed feeling. External and introjected, external is when something is bribing you, like money or a trophy also to avoid punishment. Introjected is when you are involved in something to not feel guilty about something or to be the center of attention. Identified and integrated is when you still choose but you aren't happy. Lastly, intrinsic where you are fully self motivated and you enjoy what you are doing and you carry an interest in it. There are 3 types of intristc; to know, to achieve, and "to experience stimulation"

YEAR 12 HPE - SPORT PSYCHOLOGY

Mike Margolies's curator insight, May 20, 2013 1:07 PM

Want to scare golfers. Two words, YIPS and Shanks. The thing is both issues can be helped. Takes some mental training though and that seems to be the issue. Why mentally train for a mechanical issue. Seems that has been the message for generations of golfers. Hit more puts, spend more time on the driving range. It's mechanical. Better technique, better results. Just ask Charles Barkley. Er maybe that's a bad idea.

Barbara C Lemaire's comment, May 21, 2013 1:53 PM
Athletes need to spend time on their mental toughness as well as muscle memory. Visualization of the critical moments in a game and seeing the ball go where it's intended. a sport psychologist can help.
