To engage in professional dialogue related to the psychology of sport injury. Specifically, with the aim of bridging the gap between scientific research and applied practice, we are interested in sharing information pertaining to theory, research, and practice that facilitates understanding and application of knowledge of sport injuries from a psychosocial perspective. Topics of interest are broad and include but are not limited to: psychosocial antecedents of sport injuries, prevention of sport injuries, psychological reactions to sport injuries, adherence to injury rehabilitation programs, and psychological aspects of returning to sport competition following injury.
