To engage in professional dialogue related to the psychology of sport injuries. Specifically, we are interested in research and applied strategies that pertain to understanding sport injuries from a psychosocial perspective. Specific topics of interest are broad and include but are not limited to: psychosocial antecedents to injuries, psychological reactions to sport injuries, adherence to injury rehabilitation programs, and mental aspects of returning to sport competition following injury.

Join the PIR SIG listerv
Dr. Frances Flint, 2004 SIG Coordinator, has created a listserv for members of AASP who are interested in this area. The listserv is private and is not open to the general public. The primary purpose of the listserv is to promote communication among members of AASP who have a specific interest in psychology of injury and rehabilitation. Communication via the listserv should be for the purposes of establishing links for research collaboration, seeking assistance with finding suitable databases, discussion of research based questions, and finding resources for psychology of injury and rehabilitation study. Functions that further the goal of promoting the study of this specific area are suitable for the listserv. The listserv is not to be used for personal communication or commercial solicitation.
Interested members of AASP who wish to join this listserv should email the SIG Coordinator with the subject heading of SUBSCRIBE by clicking here.
