Session 6: What impact does psychology have on recovery?
In the previous session you explored some of the models that explain psychological responses to sport injury. These models show that how an individual reacts to their injury can have an impact on their behaviour and consequently their rehabilitation outcomes. In this session you will examine the impact of psychological reactions on the rehabilitation process in more detail. You will begin by re-visiting our case studies Lois and Travis.
By the end of this session, you should be able to:
- examine the impact of psychological factors on the rehabilitation process and rehabilitation outcomes, and
- explore sport injury-related growth.
