From the Publisher
"The Athletic Trainer's Guide to Psychosocial Intervention and Referral is a much needed textbook and reference addressing psychosocial issues encountered in athletic training and allied health care settings. The wide array of psychosocial topics provides the reader with an excellent resource to refer to when challenged with atypical health issues in athletic training settings. Another major strength of this text is the pratical application of scenarios presented in each chapter. I particularly enjoyed the style of writing, which promotes critical thinking and classroom discussion….Overall, this is a nice text for teaching or referral decision making for the practicing clinician."

“The skills addressed in this book are valuable and essential for all practicing athletic trainers. The authors not only define and teach skills needed for athletic training students, but provide an excellent resource for practicing athletic trainers. This is a comprehensive, well written resource that excellently combines psychological theories with clinical athletic training practice and education. It is structured to be both an excellent educational resource for athletic training students and an invaluable resource for practicing athletic trainers. I am unaware of any book that so expertly and thoroughly defines and describes psychological issues facing athletic trainers.”

"This text would be beneficial for athletic training educators as they prepare to teach students the psychological components of providing care for young professionals with limited exposure to these concepts. This text is full of scholarly referenced theories and models that can be useful to athletic trainers… the practical application of the content is a positive feature. Athletic training educators could use this text to supplement information in a variety of classes within the athletic training curriculum due to the wide array of topics covered in the text."
