There are fascinating chapters on stress recognition and control and energy regulation, which are rich with practical techniques and, along with a chapter on mental preparation, give the intended primary target audience (mental health professionals working in sport) a detailed understanding of the psychological life of athletes . McDuff has provided the template that could ensure the mental health needs of athletes are met in the same comprehensive manner as their physical health needs. * Alan Currie, The British Journal of Psychiatry February 2013 * Although Dr. McDuff primarily works with the NFL and MLB, not all his cases include star athletes. The cases that involve youth athletes and their families are particularly enlightening and will likely be directly applicable If someone is looking for a text that is concise, relevant, and enjoyable to read, Sports Psychiatry would be a very good choice. * Howard L. Forman, M.D., Psychiatric Times February 8, 2013 * One wishes for an insightful, clinically oriented discussion of the sports culture. David R. McDuff, M.D., the longtime team psychiatrist for the Baltimore Ravens and Baltimore Orioles and countless other athletic teams, has provided just such a clinical guide There is much to recommend this book to virtually every practicing mental health professional. It is highly readable and tightly organized. Each lecture follows a logic that is evident in such a way that one is never lost, and each ends with a substantive conclusion, a summary of key clinical points, and a brief list of references. Such features make the book an easy reference guide when seeking help with a particular problem, patient, or team. A wealth of case studies accompanies various situations described, thereby illustrating the clinical applicability of different interventions. * George Bolian, M.D., Journal of Clinical Psychiatry April 2013 *
