Editorial Reviews

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."

— James E. Leone, PhD, ATC, CSCS*D, The George Washington University, Washington, DC, Journal of Athletic Training

“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.”

— Jodi Schneider, MS, ATC, Doody’s Enterprises, Inc.

 "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."

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jodi Schneider, MS, ATC (Private Practice)
Description: This book provides a comprehensive overview of common psychological issues in athletic training, including recognition and referral to appropriate practitioners.
Purpose: The purpose is two-fold. The first is to serve as a comprehensive guide to psychological issues for athletic training students based on NATA Educational Competencies and, second, to be a psychological reference for practicing athletic trainers. 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.
Audience: Athletic training students and practicing athletic trainers are the intended audience. Although it is directed specifically at athletic trainers, it would be helpful to other sports medicine professionals who work closely with athletes and who would encounter psychological issues associated with sports medicine. One of the authors is a practicing athletic trainer and the other is a licensed counselor who has focused on counseling athletes and assisting athletic trainers in psychological assessment and referral. The numerous contributing authors include practicing athletic trainers, sports medicine physicians, and sports psychologists and counselors.
Features: The book begins by providing a brief history of athletic training education and the addition of the psychological domain to educational competencies, as well as basic psychological theories and detailed descriptions of different mental healthcare providers. Detailed chapters then follow describing the recognition and referral process, as well as the most common psychological issues facing athletic trainers. Each chapter begins with detailed chapter objectives, is structured based on clinical educational competencies, and ends with exercises reinforcing the objectives of the chapter, making this an ideal undergraduate education textbook. The chapters also offer detailed clinical examples and scenarios, making this an excellent resource for practicing athletic trainers. For individuals not extremely familiar with psychological theories, some of the material can be difficult to fully understand immediately.
Assessment: 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.
