Development and Implementation of a Sport Psychology Program in an Urban High School
Journal of Applied School Psychology, v21 n2 p89-113 Dec 2005
This article is based on a dissertation of the author that was centered on the process of developing a sport psychology program at the high school level. The program was developed to address academic, mental, social, and emotional needs of student-athletes and coaches. This sport psychology program, which was developed in the Linden Public School District, a large urban district in New Jersey, may be the first such program documented on a national level. In this dissertation, the author, who was a school psychologist in the district, utilized a particular program planning and evaluation framework, with attention to the first two phases-clarification and design-to develop and implement a sport psychology program.
