Overview and Purpose

The sport psychology concentration is available to students in any one of the three GSAPP programs, clinical, school, and organizational, as well as to Ph.D. clinical psychology students and qualified individuals at the postdoctoral level.

Students who want to concentrate part of their study in sport psychology may do so only within the context of their overall program proposal in their respective disciplines.

The sport psychology concentration has been in operation since 2003 under the direction of its founder, Dr. Charles Maher of the Department of Applied Psychology.

Its purpose is three-fold:

1. To educate and train GSAPP students and others, including postdoctoral students, so that each one of them can be reliably judged as having successfully engaged in systematic education and training in sport psychology.

2. To assure that such individuals are capable of practicing sport psychology by assisting them in creating projects, dissertations, and supervised experiences that will help them acquire particular knowledge, skills, and abilities for their professional practices.

3. To generate new information about the application of psychology to sport, particularly in the service of the development and performance enhancement of athletes, coaches, parents, administrators, and others.
