Episode #41 Mental Health in Athletes: Creating safe spaces for youth athletes and beyond
Running in some barriers when providing athletes who are struggling? Not sure if you should tame their competitiveness or use it as a strength? Working with athletes of all ages and stages in sports can present some unique emotional challenges. We talk to a former professional athlete and founder of Athletes Against Anxiety and Depression, China Mccarney on how therapists can better understand and treat athletes.

Learning Objectives

  1. Define ways in which an athlete’s competitive mindset can relate to therapeutic interventions.
  2. Name the cultural  barriers that prevent athlete’s access to care.
  3. Name special considerations that therapists must be aware of when working with athletes.
