Integrative Evidence-Based Athlete Assessment and Interventions: New Directions in Applied Sport Psychology

Overview:

There is much more to sport psychology than visualization, self-talk and zone-states. The credible and ethical practice of applied sport psychology must be predicated on ecologically valid approaches to athlete assessment and mental training. Athletes must be monitored longitudinally, data procured during actual competition and analyzed relative to its predictive validity. Intervention pursuits must be tested for efficacy on an ongoing basis. It is no longer tenable to merely see athletes in an office setting, arrive at a “diagnosis” based on self report, teach them how to breathe or visualize and then send them off into “battle.” This TELE-SEMINAR will expose participants to an evidence-based field-tested ecological athlete assessment and intervention protocol that has evolved over the last eight years. A 14-step protocol will be presented and discussed, along with research findings supportive of such an approach to athlete evaluation and mental training.

Dates On-Demand

Everything you ever wanted to know (and need to know) about Sport Psychology

Overview:

This TELE-SEMINAR is for the curious, the skeptical and those seeking more than the party line, as well as newcomers to sport psychology, be they parents, coaches, educators, sport team administrators, students and athletes. Since myth and “buzzwords” pervade the landscape of sport psychology this seminar will go beyond the hype and anecdote to make participants aware of emerging perspectives and approaches in sport psychology that all consumers of “expert opinion/commentary, advice and services in the performance enhancement arena need to know. Participants will become informed consumers, they will know what to ask their practitioners, learn to think critically about mental training, challenge anecdotal claims (especially in the media and in self-help books) and importantly, learn how to go about using evidence-based mental training approaches to their benefit and that of their players or children.

ABSP TELE-SEMINARS/COURSES/MODULES (75 Minutes):

These select lectures (BELOW) can count toward American Board of Sport Psychology Certification (contingent upon passing a follow-up examination covering a lecture’s topic; OPTIONAL).

1. PERSONALITY and BEHAVIOR: PRIMARY HIGHER ORDER FACTORS
Assessment of Primary Higher Order Psychological Factors using the Carlstedt Subliminal Attention, Reactivity, Coping Scale and related tests to measure an athlete’s level of hypnotic susceptibility, neuroticism and repressive coping.

2. NEUROCOGNITION: ATHLETE BRAIN PROCESSING

Neurocognitive Testing using the Brain Resource Internet-based test battery for assessing subliminal brain responses: reaction time measures at the level of the neuron.

3. PSYCHOPHYSIOLOGICAL STRESS TESTING
In-the-laboratory psychophysiological stress testing with video stimulus/stress paradigm.

4. qEEG: BRAIN MAPPING OF SUBLIMINAL BRAIN RESPONSES in ATHLETES

Quantitative EEG (qEEG, brain mapping) using the Brain Resource Paradigm for assessing subliminal brain responding

5. WIRELESS ON-THE-PLAYING ATLETE ASSESSMENT and MONITORING: EEG

On-the-playing field assessment of brain responding using blue-tooth based wireless EEG: measuring actual brain responses come crunch-time

6. HEART RATE VARIABILITY MONITORING and ASSESSMENT

On-the-playing field assessment of heart rate variability: heart rate variability is a powerful measure of reaction to stress; HRV data can be used to predict the outcome of a tennis match, baseball performance and other sport actions as well.

7. PSYCHOLOGICAL PERFORMANCE STATISTICS I. : CRITICAL MOMENTS ANALYSES

Critical Moments analysis: an objective method to analyze how an athlete performs during critical moments.

8. PSYCHOLOGICAL PERFORMANCE STATISTICS II. : TRESHOLD ANALYSES

In-the-field Technical and Focus Threshold analysis: used to analyze mind-body-motor control and ability to concentrate during practice and competition.

Psychological performance statistics: statistics on the mental game that can be used to document psychological performance in real-time, game to game.

9. MENTAL TRAINING: OVERVIEW, AMENABILITY, EFFICACY and COMPLIANCE

10. INTERVENTION MODALITIES

a. Heart Rate Variability and RSA biofeedback: used to regulate intensity and focus

b. Neurofeedback using Carlstedt Frontal Lobe Protocols: a means of directly shaping brain wave activity associated with peak performance components such as attention/focus, motor control and intensity. Used to manipulate key brain responses associated with zone states.

A & B-ONE LECTURE

c. On-the-field Laterality manipulation training: teaches an athlete to induce immediate shifts in brain activation that have been found to underlie transition from strategic planning to perceptual pre-action preparation; left to right brain shift facilitation and relative shut-down or idling of the frontal lobes which can interfere with focus; keeping intrusive thoughts at bay.

d. Active-alert hypnosis: used with athletes who are high in hypnotic susceptibility to intensely focus and prime motor or technical responses while shutting out intrusive thoughts and external distractors.

e. Mental Imagery-per Carlstedt Protocol: special mental imagery protocols customized to an athlete’s profile and time demands of a sport.

C, D and E-ONE LECTURE

f. Tactile Motor and Technical Learning: using motor learning principles to consolidate training and technique into long-term motor memory; used in athlete’s with most negative psychological profile to override mental influences; strength and confidence though dominating physical and technical ability.

g. Motor and Technical Control Threshold Training: using psychological learning principles to greatly increase mind-body control

h. On-the-field Focus Threshold Training: same as g. to enhance focusing ability.

F, G and H-ONE LECTURE

11. OUTCOME ANALYSIS: EFFICACY TESTING of INTERVENTIONS

Investigation of effects of the above mental training methods: A critical component of the Carlstedt Protocol designed to test whether assessment is accurate and an athlete is benefiting from mental training; it is rarely, if ever used by the vast majority of practitioners which is malpractice; VITAL to CREDIBLE practice of sport psychology.

12. DATABASES of ATHLETE PSYCHOLOGICAL PERFORMANCE: THE ABSP-BRC NEUROCOGNITIVE and HEART RATE VARIABILITY DATABASES

Comprehensive Athlete Database creation and management: documenting assessment and training measures over time; databases are used for comparative purposes, for example, pre-slump versus post slump, could be used to test doper pre-and post doping and effects on numerous performance measures.

13. PSYCHOLOGICAL REPORTING: CONVEYING RESULTS

Comprehensive Report: the culmination of a complete analysis of a player’s mind-body-motor performance.

14. ETHICS and CRITICAL THINKING in SPORT PSYCHOLOGY

15. CLINICAL SPORT PSYCHOLOGY

FEE for CERTIFICATION CREDIT LECTURES/SEMINARS: $150 per topic (includes one hour lecture, follow-up test, evaluation and feedback; successfully completed tests result in topic area counting toward ABSP Certification) Completion of 10 Lectures completes the ABSP didactic requirement of the ABSP certification program (left to complete: Final Project) …
