Case Studies in Sport and Exercise Psychology

Case Studies in Sport and Exercise Psychology (CSSEP), jointly published by the Association for Applied Sport Psychology (AASP) and Human Kinetics, is an online, peer-reviewed journal and searchable library focused on providing practitioners, students, and instructors with case studies showing different approaches (strategies) and methods (tactics) relevant to sport and exercise psychology consulting, covering a wide variety of issues and topics that arise in the profession from around the world.

This unique collection of case studies, devoted entirely to sport and exercise psychology, will contain cutting-edge cases reviewed by an editorial board of outstanding academics and consultants in the field. Cases are continually updated online and cover important emerging and established areas of sport and exercise psychology. Each case is indexed and searchable by topic, author, geographic region, and keyword, making it easy for users to find cases related to their needs and interests.

Case studies begin with reflections on the context and the key agents involved, with special attention paid to the author(s), their approach to practice, their philosophy, and a brief outline of the experiences that have helped to shape and evolve their particular approach (strategies). Then, once explaining, in detail, the case itself and the focal interventions (tactics) and outcomes, there is a strong focus on reflection. The authors are required to reflect on their experience, the effectiveness of their approach, things they would do differently, and major lessons learnt.
