dc.description.abstractThe aim of the present study was to investigate into the differences within use of the sources of confidence across the three phases of rehabilitation. Injured athletes (N=51) consisted of (N=17) participants within onset, (N=17) in rehabilitation and (N=17) for return to sport. All participants completed the Modified Sources of Sport-Confidence Questionnaire (M-SSCQ; Magyar and Duda, 2000). A multifactorial MANOVA was conducted to examine the differences in the sources of sport-confidence within their use across the given phases of recovery from injury. The results of the MANOVA provided a multivariate test result of .719, given the alpha was above significance of (p<.05) no follow up tests were conducted and non-significance was reported within the differences of the sources across the phases of rehabilitation. However, means and standard deviations presented some differences, with onset regularly noted to be of highest use of the sources across the phases, dropping of and followed by rehabilitation then return to sport. Furthermore, social support and coach/physiotherapist leadership where the two highest presented means within sources noted across all three phases. The findings suggest that onset period of injury may have greater need for variety of sources when regarding confidence restoration. Further research of a qualitative longitudinal nature could help to explain these findings in the sources of confidence across the phases of injury more in depth.en_US
