PL360 PSYCH ELITE PERFORMANCE 2021 1 Behavioral Sciences and Leadership 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course focuses on the psychological theories and applied techniques that enhance elite performance. In every performance endeavor, human beings have consistently exceeded our wildest expectations. While this has been significantly affected by the technological advances physical training, an equally, if not more significant part of these advances has been the systematic approach to psychological skills training. This approach makes performance enhancement a reality to all who are seeking to perform to their full potential, regardless of the arena in which they perform. This course reviews the current theories that underlie performance enhancement training techniques and relates them to all areas of elite level performance (academic, physical, athletic, and specific areas of military training.) Topics include the development and maintenance of self-confidence, goal setting, attention and concentration, energy management, cognitive and somatic coping strategies, visualization, leadership, and team cohesion. Students will not only understand the theoretical bases underlying these topics, but apply them, through a series of individual projects, a semester-long group research project, and weekly individual instruction, to personal areas of importance.

PL360 (Version: 1990 4) COURSE DETAILS (ARCHIVED)


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
PL360 PSYCH ENHANCED PERFORMANCE 1990 4 Behavioral Sciences and Leadership 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course focuses on those psychological concepts and principles that enhance human performance. The world of sports has seen a new era of athletic performance that often has exceeded our wildest expectations. This has been significantly affected by the technological advances in all aspects of physical training and the movement sciences. However, an equally, if not more, significant part of this has been the systematic approach to the psychological and mental skills training of athletes. This systematic approach makes performance enhancement a reality to all who are seeking to perform to their full potential. This course reviews the conceptual frameworks that underlie the performance enhancement training techniques and relates them to both sport performance and to performance as leaders. Topical areas include self-image and positive thinking, principles of goal setting, attentional skills, the relationship between arousal and performance, stress management, cognitive coping strategies, imagery and visualization training, and team building. The course is specifically designed to introduce the student to performance enhancement concepts and to apply them to a personal development program.
LESSONS: 15 @ 55 min (0.000 Att/wk) LABS: 0 @ 0 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
A course project requiring the design of a personal performance enhancement training program incorporating the major psychological/mental skills covered in the course (2500-5000 words).
