athletes and other sports professionals face challenges which require therapy.

heightens these levels and can cause a considerable amount of damage. It is therefore in this light that the importance of sports psychologist is reiterated. Issues in sports psychology are usually anchored around stress and anxiety. Taking, for instance, an issue like goal setting, typically when things do not turn out as expected the result will most likely be stress and anxiety. Additionally, the proposed topic will be strongly supported by the following sources. Stenling, A. (2017). Fear of failure, psychological stress, and burnout among adolescent athletes competing in high level sport. Scandinavian journal of medicine & science in sports , 27 (12), 2091-2102. According to Stenling, psychological stress is addressed with the issue of adolescent athletes taking center stage. This directly applies to the selected topic as the issue is more common in teenagers who despite being athletes, for example, they are likely to be grappling with other issues attributed to their age. The research provides a different perspective of addressing the issue by considering a specific group which might be prone to stress. Belz, J., Heidari, J., Levenig, C., Hasenbring, M., Kellmann,

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
