Through critical analysis of relevant research and psychological theory, you’ll consider the psycho-developmental influences of factors, such as families, coach-athlete interactions and transitional stages, on an individual’s pathway in sport.
The Exploring Psychological Aspects of Athletic Development course delivered by The Open University is suitable for you if you have an interest in sport and exercise psychology, or are working in this field in a coaching role. While the module is focused predominantly on sports performance, it does also consider some aspects of exercise participation.
The interpretation of research evidence will build increased awareness and knowledge of psychological issues in sport that should influence the approach of those working in the sector. This may enhance the more intuitive approaches and solutions adopted by sports coaches and exercise instructors towards athletic development pathways they encounter.
