Sport Injury Psychology

Sport injury psychology is an area of research that continues to flourish and diversify in the applied sport psychology literature. The value and timeliness of this special issue lies in the increasing acknowledgement of the importance of this area of research in understanding how sport psychologists can work within the multidisciplinary team to assist towards preventing sport injury, supporting rehabilitation, and enabling a successful return to or away from sport.

The objective of this special issue is to bridge the gap between research and practice and translate emerging knowledge into an accessible and broad account of the field for practitioners. In line with the scope of JASP, an essential element of any submitted manuscript should be to further thought, theory, and research on applied aspects of sport injury psychology. Hence, we are interested in receiving submissions that report primarily empirical studies that are rigorous and significantly advance knowledge and understanding in the field, but we will also consider review and position papers. Topics for the special issue may include but are not limited to:

  • Interdisciplinary research
  • Novel epistemologies, theories, and methodologies
  • Cultural and social environments that determine injury and rehabilitation
  • Relational impact of injury on athletes’ support networks
  • Mental health and well-being
  • Embodied experiences of injury
  • Innovative applied practices
