Alyssa, My PhD is on the Role of the psychological factors in the recovery from sports injury. I can give you a general overview of the field if you want or direct you to some more specific studies. For a start you could try searching PsychLit for Britten Brewer, who has published several articles on the topic. If you want more info email me and I'll give you the specific refs or any other info. good Luck adam
