The DVD shows sport psychology consultants Burt Giges, Kenneth Ravizza, Judy Van Raalte and Len Zaichkowsky working with athletes in natural sport environments.

Running length 46 minutes.

This DVD features four short vignettes in which sport psychology consultants conduct brief interventions with athlete clients. Hosted by Al Petitpas, Ed.D. (Professor of Psychology and Director of the Center for Youth Development and Research through Sport at Springfield College), the video shows sport psychology consultants working with athletes in naturalistic sport environments.

Each of the four segments of the video illustrates an example of the types of spontaneous interaction that can initiate changes in athletes' behavior or perception and interrupt patterns of unconstructive thinking. The DVD provides vivid demonstrations of the sport psychology equivalent of first aid in practice, precompetitive, and postcompetitive contexts.

Customer Review

"This video lends itself to a variety of educational uses. Sport psychology graduate students who are learning how to translate classroom theories and concepts to real life situations will benefit from seeing how these experts ply their trade. Experienced professionals will find the video a stimulus for sharpening their conceptualizations and enhancing their intervention https://www.tradebit.comally, the video may be helpful to high school and undergraduate college students who are considering possible careers in sport psychology. I have often been asked by such students if they could shadow me for a day and observe how I work with clients. Unfortunately, this is usually impossible for reasons of client confidentiality and possible interference with the process. Viewing this tape, in many cases, would be the next best possible means of seeing sport psychology consulting in action.
All in all, Brief Contact Interventions lives up to the high standards set by its predecessors. It is definitely a two-thumbs up production."
