Teaching Organisation 150 hours of focused learning.

In prescribing and delivering sport performance programs, effective practice requires the use of evidence–based behavioural strategies that align with the unique needs of those in performance settings. This is consistent with the professional standards for many accreditations, including those for Exercise Science. This unit aims to provide students with an understanding of the psychological influences on performance and well–being in sport settings. Students will explore evidence–based psychological, interpersonal, and leadership skills for use in performance settings, as well as the role of psychology in contemporary sport issues.
