Assisting College Students with Athletic Disengagement
Van Lone, Jeffrey S.; Siembor, Michael; Mistler, Brian J.; Mapstone, David J.
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v31 n2 p132-154 2017
This article examines college student disengagement from sports, presents a multidimensional concept of athletic identity, and introduces a new measure intended to assist college counselors in their work with disengaged athletes. The Multidimensional Athletic Identity and Engagement Scale (MAIES) is introduced (Cronbach alpha 0.98, with subscale alphas between 0.78 and 0.96), and the results of exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses and convergent and divergent validity with 250 college student participants are presented. Using case examples, the authors discuss how counselors may use the MAIES in their work with students. Limitations of the study and suggestions for future research are discussed.
