Sports coaching for successAuthor(s):
Karam Singh SahotaAbstract:
The case study describes a program that has been developed utilizing techniques and instructions to help athletes to make changes consciously and unconsciously. Techniques include, but are not limited to observation, sports hypnosis, NLP, experience of the transpersonal and regression work related with psychotherapy. They have been developed after much diligent research, and sessions done with top-level athletes including Olympians, over the last 18 years by a Sports Hypnotist and Mental trainer. The basic idea for my due diligence on the program and research thereafter is to highlight the importance and initiate the inclusion of a sporting activity: being necessary for the healthy growth of an individual, as well as for society as a whole. Being sporty, means to be able to open your-self up with unlimited scope and go beyond the barriers of the norms of individual thinking. A sportsperson engenders society towards building it as a healthier community. I was given the task of working with the target age group of 14 years- 24 years of age: both boys and girls. My focused task was to understand the program content and apply my own critical thinking skills to witness the efficacy of the program. My interaction with the group, helped me build the questions, that would make the program participants much more responsive to use the tools therein. Since the age group is closer to my age than the therapist: my observation of the application of the program was critical to its success. I found it very interesting to notice how an athlete applies his mind to contemplate over his own skill set. I learned that most times knowing a skill and having the ability to work to meet it, means two different things. I found it difficult at first, yet once I interacted with eth group I found it was much simpler to work on constructing the questions pages. The response on the question pages, created the road map for the therapist to design the rest of the content: to understand the efficacy of the program content delivered so far, and to ensure that the tools were being absorbed and utilized by the participants.Pages: 07-09 | 441 Views 40 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
