Ways of knowing in sport psychology
Any systematic study of sport psychology should include the following stages:
1. Observation & description (what is)
Identify or define the essential characteristics
2. Explanation & analysis(why)
Attempt to provide reason for the findings in stage 1.
3. Prediction(what will be)
Use the knowledge obtained to predict future occurrences.
4. Control (how can we?)
What can we control to change the behaviour or performance?
Scientific Method
Founded on the concept of Objectivity (lack of bias-researchers are detached
observers and manipulators of nature)
It is a process or method of learning that uses systematic, controlled, empirical, and
critical filtering of knowledge acquired through experience.
Six steps of the Scientific Method
1. Formulation of a specific hypothesis
