Brewer, Britton W.; Selby, Christine L.; Linder, Darwyn E.; Petitpas, Albert J.
Journal of Personal & Interpersonal Loss, v4 n2 p149-62 1999
Tests the hypothesis that sport participants would reduce their self-identification with the athlete role in response to the personal loss resulting from a poor competitive season. Male intercollegiate athletes who were not satisfied with their performances during the season tended to decrease their athletic identity to a greater extent than participants who were satisfied with their performances during the season.
