Mental training

Use ideas - optimize performance

In this practical textbook, two renowned sports psychologists use their findings from psychology, neurophysiology and sports science to show how mental training works. They show the scientific background and give concrete instructions for action, clear examples and practical tips on how to structure the training. They wrote this work for trainers, coaches, sports psychologists, psychotherapists and sports scientists.

Athletes, in particular, but also surgeons, pilots and other top performers are often under enormous pressure: they have to be able to achieve their maximum performance in stressful situations. But when the burden of high expectations, unpredictable events or fear of negative consequences increases, even well-practiced actions suddenly become difficult or even fail because "the head does not play along". This is where the mental training comes in: The tried and tested psychological process uses ideas to play through action sequences in advance and helps to concentrate on the essentials - so that the emergency becomes a success!
