ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency with which exercise specialist address certain psychological issues related to injury and non-injury related psychological issues with their athletes or patients, their attitude to deal with psychological issues, and referral patterns to other mental health professionals. A hundred clinical exercise specialists who educate exercise rehabilitation of the injured athletes were participated and data from 60 persons were analyzed. Statistical analyses were performed using SPSS (version 18.0 for windows). Exercise specialist (ES) group reported frequently encountering psychological issues more related to injury than unrelated to injury in athletes and patients. Furthermore, ES believed it was their role to address injury more than non-injury-related psychological issues with athletes and patients. Less experienced ES reported slightly less competent and much less comfortable with psychological skills than more experienced ES. The current findings suggest that ES encounter and discuss psychological issues during rehabilitation frequently. Clinical implications regarding the dealing with psychological issues during the rehabilitation were discussed.
