The primary goal of this presentation is to describe and define the expanding roles that psychiatrists, psychologists and other mental health providers are filling with athletes and teams at all competitive levels. It will discuss the main services that behavioral health specialists can provide including mental preparation training, stress control, sleep & energy regulation, substance use prevention, injury recovery, mental disorder treatment, and crisis management. Specific emphasis will be placed on identifying barriers to providing services to high school, collegiate, professional, and Olympic athletes and to basic and complex strategies for peak performance. Additional time will be spent discussing the most common mental health symptoms and disorders in competitive athletes and how the prevalence of these compare to the general population.
This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors and other mental health professionals.
At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:
1. Define the difference between a sport psychologist and sports psychiatrist and describe the main clinical services that they can provide to athletes and teams across the lifecycle of a full year.
2. Describe a triangle model of peak performance and explain and demonstrate some basic and complex mental skills that can be integrated into the physical and technical aspects of training and competition.
3. Identify the most common mental health symptoms and disorders seen in competitive athletes and describe some effective strategies for their prevention and treatment.
