    Individual pathways through the junior-to-senior transition: Narratives of two Swedish team sport athletes2019In: Journal of Applied Sport Psychology, ISSN 1041-3200, E-ISSN 1533-1571Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Athletes frequently describe the JST as the most difficult within-career transition, and many of them have acknowledged that they failed to cope well with it (e.g., Stambulova, 2009). Athletes’ development in the junior-to-senior transition (JST) is influenced by narratives existing within relevant contexts and settings. This study served as a follow-up to the quantitative longitudinal study to gain a deeper understanding of individual JST paths through a qualitative narrative approach. The aim was to explore two team sport athletes’ (John, the football player, and Anna, the basketball player) JST pathways, emphasizing psychosocial factors that were perceived as facilitating and debilitating the process. Narrative type interviews were conducted, and the holistic-form structural analysis (Smith, 2016) was used. Through their narratives, John and Anna reconstructed their JST paths, attaching meanings to certain events, recounting the people involved, and making personal reflections. John had a performance and family narrative and Anna, an enjoyment and relationship narrative. They perceived their key facilitating persons to be their family members and teammates. The debilitating factors were some coaches’ behaviors. At the time of this study, John and Anna had already terminated their athletic careers and had refocused on getting an education. Although they did not reach elite senior levels in their sports, they found their athletic career meaningful life experiences.

    It Pays to Pay Attention: A Mindfulness-Based Program for Injury Prevention with Soccer Players2015In: Journal of Applied Sport Psychology, ISSN 1041-3200, E-ISSN 1533-1571, Vol. 27, no 3, p. 319-334Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to examine the extent to which a mindfulness-based program could reduce the number of sports injuries in a sample of soccer players. A total of 41 junior elite soccer players were randomly assigned to the treatment or the attentional control group. The treatment group took part in a 7-session program based on the mindfulness, acceptance, and commitment (MAC) approach (Gardner & Moore, 2007). The attentional control group was offered 7 sessions of sport psychology presentations with a particular focus on soccer. There were no statistically significant differences in injury rates between the two groups (U (39) = 149.50, z= −1.77, p = .077), but there was a medium effect size (adjusted Cohen´s d = −0.59, approx. 80% CI for d = −0.37 – −0.74). Moreover, 67% of the players in the mindfulness group remained injury-free in comparison to 40% in the control group. This result suggests that an intervention program focusing on strategies for improving attention could decrease injury risk. Recommendations include applying mindfulness exercises in athletes’ daily training to help lower injury risk. © 2015, Copyright © Association for Applied Sport Psychology.

    The Russian Origins of Sport Psychology: A Translation of an Early Work of A. C.Puni2005In: Journal of Applied Sport Psychology, ISSN 1041-3200, E-ISSN 1533-1571, Vol. 17, no 2, p. 157-169Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sport psychology today is a vibrant and thriving field with well-developed theory and increased opportunities for applied consulting. However, when the field is historicized, it is often done so with an emphasis on its North American roots (c.f., Williams & Straub, 2001). While the development of sport psychology in other parts of the world, particularly Eastern Europe, is acknowledged, less is known about the contributions of individuals in those countries. One such person, who was one of the earliest contributing figures to the field, is the Russian practitioner and scholar Avksenty Tcezarevich Puni (1898 – 1986). To date, English-speaking audiences have been unaware of the profound influence of Puni’s work because his papers were published in Russian. Though some of Puni’s work was translated into various languages of the European socialist countries, only glimpses of his work exist in English in the form of a few published abstracts of papers Puni presented at international conferences.  

                          In this paper, we offer the first of two essays designed to acquaint English-speaking readers with the work of this patriarch of Russian sport psychology. The second essay (Stambulova, Wrisberg, & Ryba, 2004) entitled “A Tale of Two Traditions in Applied Sport Psychology: The Heyday of Soviet Sport and a Wake-Up Call for North America,” is currently in preparation. Both papers represent our attempt to disrupt the established linear flow of the North American narrative by juxtaposing Russian and English historical texts, original Puni’s writings (including documents from his personal archives), and oral history.[i] This first essay begins with a short biographical sketch of Puni, followed by an English translation of one of his most influential early works. It concludes with a brief discussion of some of the parallel events transpiring in North American sport psychology during Puni’s era.

    A tale of two traditions in applied sport psychology: the heyday of Soviet sport and wake-up calls for North America2006In: Journal of Applied Sport Psychology, ISSN 1041-3200, E-ISSN 1533-1571, Vol. 18, no 3, p. 173-184Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is the second of two essays designed to acquaint English-speaking readers with the work of Avksenty Tcezarevich Puni (1898-1986), one of the fathers of Russian sport psychology. In our previous essay "The Russian origins of sport psychology: a translation of an early work of A. Tc. Puni" (Ryba, Stambulova, & Wrisberg, 2005), we discussed Puni's innovative ideas of psychological preparation of athletes based on his classic paper "Psychological preparation of athletes for a competition" that was published in 1963. In that essay, we grounded Puni's pioneering work within the specific socio-political and historical context of his era by providing a brief overview of his life (including extensive explanatory footnotes) in pre- and post-Socialist Revolution Russia. In this paper, we attempt to further historicize the work of Puni on the psychological preparation of athletes by discussing his ground-breaking model of Psychological Preparation for a Competition (PPC) and contrasting that work with the activity of sport psychology consultants taking place in North America during the same time period (i.e., 1960s and 1970s). In a concluding section, we will discuss some of the lessons sport psychology consultants have learned in the decades since Puni developed his model and suggest some ways future models might expand on Puni's view of the provision of psychological assistance for athletes.
