By processing past traumas, athletes can overcome them and return to peak performance.
Amherst, MA (PRWEB) September 07, 2011
This book introduces the concept of sports traumatic stress disorder, which the authors claim cause most significant performance problems for athletes. Sports traumas such as injuries, humiliation and failures keep athletes from achieving optimal potential. Case histories, including New York Mets catcher Mackey Sasser and a college pitcher, offer real-world evidence of their breakthrough theories. Athletes who sustain physical and psychological injuries unconsciously accumulate them over time until they reach a critical mass, eventually forming “the invisible seeds” for repetitive performance difficulties, the authors write.
"This is Your Brain on Sports" does more than just point out the issue. The authors unveil their “Brainspotting Sports Performance System,” which they say, “quickly finds, releases and resolves the sports traumas” athletes hold in their brain and body, leading to performance anxiety and blocks. Unlike traditional sports therapy, the authors recognize that athletes are vulnerable to physical and emotional trauma – their problems are not necessarily under conscious control. Instead of treating troubled athletes with talk therapy, they use techniques that include eye position to find where the brain is holding the problem to release the trauma’s present effects. By processing past traumas, athletes can overcome them and return to peak performance.
