A Coach's & Trainer's Guide to Managing Wounded Athletes
with Jerry Lynch,
PhD; Sport Psychologist
There are two kinds of athletes: those who are injured and those who will become injured. In the competitive arena, even the smallest injury can be absolutely devastating to an athlete - both physically and mentally. Lynch's insight and expertise is based on his interactions with thousands of athletes throughout his career. He sheds light on the emotional, mental and psychological components of the injury process in an effort to minimize and cope with the unavoidable injuries that arise. In addition, he shares his suggestions for the treatment of injuries, no only physiologically, but psychologically as well. Lynch, with the help of other professionals, provides you with the tools you need to create a positive, proactive management plan to help an injured athlete heal physically and mentally.
