Rebound Training Your Mind to Bounce Back Stronger from Sports Injuries

Rebound Training Your Mind to Bounce Back Stronger from Sports Injuries

Author: Cindy Kuzma, Carrie Jackson Cheadle Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/08/2019

Written by a leading mental skills coach and contributing editor to Runner's World (US), this is a practical guide to building the psychological resilience that athletes need to recover from injury and rebound stronger. Injuries affect every athlete, from the elite Olympian to the weekend racer. In the moment, a traumatic crash, a torn muscle, or a stress fracture can feel like the most devastating event possible. While some athletes are destroyed by the experience, others emerge from their recovery better, stronger, and more confident than ever. The key to a swifter, stronger comeback is the use of mental skills: psychological tools that enable an athlete to take control of their recovery and ultimately use the experience to their advantage. Injury and other setbacks are inevitable - but with training, overcoming them skillfully and confidently is possible. This book will provide a clear, compelling explanation of psychological recovery from injury and a practical guide to building mental resilience. Weaving together personal narratives from star athletes, scientific research, and the specialized clinical expertise of mental skills coach Carrie Jackson Cheadle, it will contain more than 45 Mental Skills and Drills that athletes can use at every phase of their recovery process. These same strategies can help athletes who aren't currently injured reduce their vulnerability to injury, and enable any individual to reach new heights within their sport and beyond.

Publication of a research article can be a defining moment in a researcher's career.

To aid in this process, Professional Writing in Kinesiology and Sports Medicine was developed to serve as a comprehensive writing guide for research professionals and students who are looking to improve their academic writing skills. Dr. Mark Knoblauch and his 15 contributors developed Professional Writing in Kinesiology and Sports Medicine to focus around the area of manuscript development and presentation, while also including chapters that outline the foundational concepts of professional writing, developing a research grant, and the journal selection process. Each chapter is written by content experts who bring a wealth of experience not only from their own academic writing but also from having spent countless hours helping students become better, more effective writers.

What you can find inside: * Examination of ancillary aspects associated with academic research such as poster and oral presentations * How to choose the most effective journal * How to deal with the stress of writing * How to write an effective grant Professional Writing in Kinesiology and Sports Medicine covers those topics and more, with the intent of providing a thorough, practical writing guide that spans the breadth of the research manuscript development, writing, and presentation process.
