is psychologists and consultants practicing in the sport domain, we also wish to appeal to a range of other informed delivers and consumers, including students, trainee psychologists, educators and supervisors, sports scientists and medics, sports coaches and parents, performance directors and managers, the media, and athletes themselves.
