Made in Denmark: Ecological perspectives on applied sport psychology and talent development in Danish professional football

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportPh.d.-afhandlingForskning

Resumé

The holistic ecological approach to research in talent development in sport highlights the central role of the overall environment as it affects an athlete in his/her athletic development. In the talent development process in elite sport, applied sport psychology becomes an important factor as a way to optimize the performance of a team or an athlete. This dissertation aims to throws light on the constraints and preconditions involved in applying sport psychology from an ecological perspective in a successful Danish football academy. The dissertation is based on a case study and data collection includes interviews and participant observations of daily life in the environment, supplemented with analysis of documents from the football academy. The dissertation presents an ecological sport psychology service model and describes six fundamental governing principles to inform an intervention inspired by the holistic ecological perspective. The findings reveal that practitioners need to be aware of preconditions and constraints before developing strategies and interventions in professional football. These preconditions and constraints are relevant for, and inform, sport psychology services in professional football. The dissertation has the potential to inspire practitioners to be sensitive to, and analyze, not only the individual player’s athletic development but also the overall organizational settings and culture in sport psychology delivery in talent development environments.
