Imagery use during rehabilitation from injury
Berkeley Electronic Press
MetadataShow full item record
A key feature of athletes’ psychological responses to injury, and one which underpins the efficacy of psychological skills use during rehabilitation, is 'change'. In order to accurately assess change it is widely acknowledged research needs be conducted temporally. This was the first published study to explore athletes’ use of imagery within a temporal context. The findings provided support for changes in imagery use across rehabilitation, a finding that has not previously been evidenced in the published research, and which has important implications for injured athletes’ use of imagery. Evans designed the study, oversaw data collection, wrote/edited the manuscript.
