Peter GRÖPEL (Topics): Psychological Determinants of *Sport

*select a sport type (e.g. “Psychological Determinants of Soccer”).

Different types of sport place different demands on athletes, which in turn may reflect considerably different factors underlying successful performance in a sport type. In order to build up necessary skills for a particular sport and target psychological interventions, the identification of psychological determinants of that sport constitutes the essential first step. The aim of this bachelor thesis therefore is to select a particular sport and, using a structured interview with athletes, identify the relevant psychological determinants. Students will learn and apply Performance Profiling, an easy-to-use method to identify physical and psychological determinants of sports. They are expected to conduct (and analyze) semi-structured interviews with 10 athletes (and/or coaches) from their selected sport. The supervision will be provided in group settings; there will be four obligatory meetings: March11, April15, May19, and June17, 14:00-15:30, online or Lab Sport Psychology (USZ II, 1st floor)
