Scenario 

A Soccer team that has a new manager and a number of the team have been promoted to the first team from the academy. The group has struggled to bond effectively and consequently performance has been poor and the fans and crowds at matches are starting to get restless.

 

Below is the list of information that you need to include in your presentation:

  • Cover two concepts with your individual (Anxiety and Confidence), or team (Leadership, Group Dynamics, and Group Cohesion) factors.

 

  • Introduce the case study and the client (‘s) you are presenting and the sport. The scenario is very basic so expand and be creative with this. Ensure you set the scene for the audience, so they understand the case study in question.

 

  • Use relevant theory to explain the chosen psychological construct (i.e. anxiety, group dynamics etc.)- ensure you include definitions, theories and models, research and make the link to your sporting example (as per your chosen case study) clear.

 

  • Consider the clients issue and propose an appropriate intervention. Again, use relevant theory to explain how the intervention can address the issue and ensure you fully justify your recommendation.

 

  • A reference list of all references used throughout the presentation
