Sport Psychology Essay : LUSENET : APA Division 47 Exercise and Sport Psychology : One Thread

I'm doing an independent study on sport psychology. It has to be at least 2000 words. I was wondering if you could tell me some things I could mention in my essay, and what I should focus in on.

I am taking a sport psych class and areas of primary focus have been team cohesion and how it is related to success, arousal and aggressiveness (the inverted U theory), progressive relaxation, zone of optimal functioning, drive theory, imagery, high and low achievers, controlling and informational rewards, anxiety (anticipatory), Atkinson's Theory of Achievement Motivation, sport socialization... If you have any questions on the definitions of these terms, email me and I will be more than happy to help you out. It helps me know it better, to help others.
