People helping people? Examining the social ties of athletes coping with burnout and injury stress



People helping people? Examining the social ties of athletes coping with burnout and injury stress



Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology 19(4): 368-395



It is often assumed that important others can play significant roles in reducing stress among athletes. However, little attention has been given to (a) what specifically these important others say or do to reduce stress (empathise vs. motivate), and (b) how prevalent various types (positive vs. negative) of interactions are. This study conducts in-depth retrospective interviews with athletes who experienced burnout (n = 10) or season-ending injuries (n = 21).
