This unit introduces students to a range of topics related to the different ways in which psychological, behavioural and cognitive factors may affect individual and team performance in sport, and to the ways that sport and exercise may impact on psychological and behavioural factors. The unit also provides students with practical experience in mental strategies to enhance athletic performance. Although directly related to sport performance, the unit would be useful to students interested in other performance domains.
