Building Consulting Skills in Sport and Performance Psychology is an international compilation of case studies that introduces students and early career professionals to pertinent issues within a variety of performance environments.
With contributions from prominent international practitioners, the book offers case studies from a variety of performance environments including sport, performing arts, and high-risk occupations. Each chapter presents a case study and provides exploratory questions relating to ethical considerations, intervention planning, and awareness of diverse themes of race, culture, gender, immigration status, and disability, among others. These reflection questions encourage students to acknowledge the individual circumstances of all performers and to recognize their own unique background and how this impacts their attitudes, beliefs, and connection to potential clients. The text promotes honest self-reflection regarding consulting strengths and potential areas for improvement, and an online Instructors’ Manual looks at possible solutions for each case.
The book will be essential reading for supervisors, mentors, students, and professionals engaged in providing consulting services in distinct performance environments. It encourages its readers to use careful self-reflection to integrate theory and practice and refine their own consulting philosophies.
