The Journal of Clinical Sport Psychology (JCSP) promotes the understanding and advancement of the integration of clinical, counseling, and sport psychology. JCSP strives to stimulate thought, promote empirical investigation, and disseminate scientifically informed knowledge related to the comprehensive psychological care and overall well-being of athletes, coaches, and sport organizations.
The journal is for specialists who are engaged in a variety of contexts, including private, public, and educational settings. JCSP addresses topics relating to psychological health and well-being of athletes and coaches, psychological aspects of athletic performance, and issues and concerns that connect physical and psychological functioning.
JCSP has published special issues on culturally informed sport psychology and psychophysiology and neuroscience in sport as well as eating disorders in college athletics. Past issues have contained case studies, field studies, empirical research, and evaluation research examining both the scientific and applied concerns in working with athletes, coaches, and organizations.
