OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article was to examine the main and stress-buffering effect relationships between social support and psychological responses to injury. DESIGN The article presents two studies, both of which matched social support types with injury stressors. Study 1 used measures of stressors, perception of social support availability, and(More)
The study examined the effects of a 5-week goal-setting intervention on athletes' rehabilitation adherence, self-efficacy, treatment efficacy, and the psychological response variables: dispirited and reorganization. Participants were matched across six variables and randomly assigned to one of three groups: goal-setting intervention, social support control,(More)
The purpose of this study was twofold: (a) to examine the stressors experienced by injured athletes during three phases of their recovery from sport injury, and (b) to explore the differences in the stressors experienced by team as compared to individual-sport athletes. Participants comprised previously injured high-level rugby union players (n = 5) and(More)
The present study explored the perceived affect of personal and situational variables, perception of pain, and imagery ability on the function and outcome of an Olympic athlete’s use of imagery. To gain an in-depth understanding of these factors, semistructured interviews were conducted across three phases of injury rehabilitation, and return to(More)
The Social Support Survey (SSS), validated by Richman, Rosenfeld, and Hardy (1993), is a multidimensional self-report measure of social support tested with student athletes. The SSS contains eight dimensions of support. For each dimension of support the same four questions are posed. The SSS could, therefore, be scored in two ways: (a) to derive a score for(More)
Purpose. To develop a pharmacokinetic model for tenidap and to identify important relationships between the pharmacokinetic parameters and available covariates. Methods. Plasma concentration data from several phase I and phase II studies were used to develop a pharmacokinetic model for tenidap, a novel anti-rheumatic drug. An appropriate pharmacokinetic(More)
The current qualitative follow-up study was conducted to enhance the interpretability and meaningfulness of the findings emerging from a 5-week goal-setting intervention study with injured athletes. Semistructured interviews were conducted with a sample of 9 injured athletes, 3 from each of the three intervention study groups (goal-setting, social support(More)
This qualitative study explored the career termination experiences of 9 male, retired professional cricketers between the ages of 28 and 40 (mean value 34, s = 4.65 m). The participants took part in retrospective, semi-structured interviews. Data from the interviews were inductively content analysed within three transition phases of the retirement process:(More)
OBJECTIVES This qualitative follow-up study aimed to enhance the interpretability and meaningfulness of the findings that emerged from a quantitative study that explored the effect of hardiness on the prediction of, and response to, sport injury (i.e., Wadey, Evans, Hanton, & Neil, 2012). DESIGN Using theory-based and maximum-variation sampling to(More)
Objective: The purpose of the present study was to examine the main and buffering effect relationships between social support and psychological responses to sport injury with samples of highand lowperformance standard injured participants. Method: High(N 1⁄4 147) and low-performance (N 1⁄4 114) standard injured participants completed measures of perceived(More)
