This was the first of two linked manuscripts published in the same edition of Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport. The study explored the effects of a five-week goal-setting intervention on athletes’ rehabilitation adherence, self-efficacy, treatment efficacy, and a number of psychological response variables. This paper remains one of very few experimentally-based published studies that has examined the intervention effects of goal-setting in a rehabilitation context and included a control group. The study was also notable for controlling for the potentially confounding effect of social support. The findings provided the impetus for a qualitative follow-up study.
