Research on athletes returning to sport after injury.

If you have returned to sport following an injury, please consider assisting with the following research study online survey. 



My name is Rachel Stevens, I am an undergraduate student at the University of Chester studying Psychology with Sport and Exercise Science. I am currently looking for participants for my dissertation study that is looking at the influence of social support and mental toughness to the return of sport after injury in athletes from individual sports. This project is being supervised by Dr Moira Lafferty, a HCPC registered psychologist.

Participants must be above 16 years of age, at a competitive level, not have clinical depression and have been injured at some point which has resulted in being out of training for a 3-week period. The study is to answer three questionnaires regarding general sport and injury background, social support and mental toughness.

Do you have any athletes you think would be interested in participating in this study? If you do, I would greatly appreciate it if you could distribute this link to the questionnaire to your members.
