Counseling and Psychological Services for College Student-Athletes

Second Edition

A wide variety of stressors face college student-athletes entering today’s increasingly demanding inter collegiate athletic environment. Counseling and Psychological Services for College Student-Athletes, Second Edition, weaves current research findings, practical examples, and best practices to provide undergraduate and graduate student readers with the necessary tools to effectively and ethically address these issues as future practitioners.

Expert chapter authors use their knowledge and experience to address collegiate student-athlete issues such as mental health, injury, race, gender, sexuality, and socioeconomic background, as well as ethical and professional considerations.

This updated second edition includes a case vignette at the beginning of each chapter to illustrate the key concepts and discussion questions to encourage thoughtful interaction with the material. New chapters have been added on student-athlete topics including developmental considerations, trauma, concussions, and internationality to assist in facilitating positive change in the lives of college student-athletes.
