dc.description.abstractThe focus on the present study was to investigate the relationship between sources of confidence and re-injury anxiety among injured athletes. Injured athletes (N=45) completed the Modified Sources of Sport-Confidence Questionnaire (M-SSCQ; Magyar & Duda, 2000) and the Re-Injury Anxiety Inventory (RIAI; Walker, Thatcher & Lavellee, 2010). A multiple regression analysis was adopted in order to examine the relationship between sources of confidence and the subscales of re-injury anxiety (frequency rehabilitation, intensity rehabilitation, frequency re-entry, and intensity re-entry). This analysis also gave a score as to the variance the M-SSCQ could explain the re-injury anxiety subscales. All subscales were found to be significant (p<.05) when explained by M-SSCQ. Social support (p<.01) and environmental comfort (p<.05) were found to individually contribute to an increase in re-injury anxiety in both a rehabilitation setting and on re-entry phase. Self-presentation was also found to be significant (p<.01) to increase the frequency of re-injury anxiety in rehabilitation. These findings suggest that specific sources of confidence can increase re-injury anxiety and reduce the chances of successful return to competition. However further qualitative research may help to explain why athletes perceive this to be the caseen_US
