Abstract

Sporting and sport psychological accomplishments are an important part of Scandinavian culture. Psychological factors have been demonstrated to have a major impact on both participation and achievements in sport. Sport psychology is about precisely these factors.

Contributors from key sport psychology research teams in Sweden, Denmark and Norway present resarch covering a wide range of issues in the book’s twelve chapters. By publishing the contributions collectively as an Open Access anthology, the authors wish to reach researchers in the field of sport psychology, sport psychology advisers and professionals throughout Scandinavia. The volume will also be relevant to anyone with any interest in sport. The editors of the book are Tommy Haugen and Rune Høigaard, who are both affiliated with the Department of Public Health, Sport and Nutrition in the Faculty of Health and Sport Sciences at the University of Agder.

Abstract

"The purpose of this study was to examine the self-talk of elite triathletes during a competition. Furthermore, we wanted to investigate possible differences in content and frequency in self-talk during a triathlon competition among elite and club triathletes. Participants were ten members of the Norwegian triathlon national team as well as ten triathletes competing at Norwegian club level. The competition consisted of an indoor sprint-distance triathlon (a 750 m pool swim leg, a 20 km ergometer cycling leg, and a 5 km treadmill run leg). Self-talk content and frequency were measured using a Norwegian version of the Automatic Self-Talk Questionnaire for Sports (ASTQS). Overall, results showed that all athletes reported more positive than negative self-talk during competition. Moreover, elite athletes reported more confidence-inducing self-talk compared to the club level athletes during the swim. The findings also indicated that elite athletes were more able than club athletes to maintain higher levels of positive self-talk during the latter stages of the competition (5 km run). This tendency was reversed regarding negative self-talk. Elite athletes reported less negative self-talk compared to club level athletes towards the end of the competition."

Abstract

"The overall purpose of this study was to examine how a transformative and community psychological approach could affect a socially challenged neighbourhood and participants´ perceptions of involvement (young boys, 12–16 years). A social research experiment lasting 2 years was co-created between researchers, practitioners and participants. A multi-method approach was used to ensure that thorough and socially robust knowledge was produced. Methods used included questionnaires, interviews, fieldwork and observations. Although several notable results emerged throughout the intervention period, the most important results were related to the significance of the overall approach regarding these results. Despite the challenges faced by researchers, when engaging youth at the margins of society in a co-creation process, the approach seemed valuable. Giving the participants the possibility to engage themselves, through empowerment initiatives, seems to be a confounding reason for the success of the project. Hence, this article will focus upon the benefits of using a community psychological approach when working with exercise psychology in a socially deprived community."
