Over the past 15 years, the study and management of sport concussion have united many scientists and practitioners, resulting in the recent Zurich consensus statement of evidence-based guidelines for the management of sport concussion. This special issue of the Journal of Clinical Sport Psychology, the first in a two-part series that focuses on recent developments in research and clinical management of sport concussion, presents the latest best-practice approaches to the management of cerebral concussion in sport. International experts review topics relevant to practitioners who work with athletes vulnerable to or recovering from cerebral concussion. The second special issue will review issues related to examining the nature, impact, and clinical management of cerebral concussions in the sport milieu. Authors with extensive experience in research on sport concussion contribute to each issue. This special series from JCSP presents information for those who are involved with clinical management of concussed athletes and serves as a review for those who are well informed on the topic and work within a science-practitioner model.
