Principles of Sports Psychology Can Help Us Overcome Pain and Avoid Injury
Pain and injury are part of the experience of sporting activities. My guests, Clinical Psychologists James Bruce, Jr., Ph.D., and Anne-Marie Nicolas, Psy.D., will talk about how competitive athletes deal with pain and avoid injury. The principles of sports psychology can be used by recreational athletes, non-athletes, and people with chronic pain to reduce the experience of pain. We will also talk about how careful planning and realistic goal-setting can help us avoid injuries during sports activities and physical workouts.
