What is a Sport Psychologist?

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]

A Sport Psychologist must first of all be a licensed Psychologist. This means that the professional has a doctoral degree in psychology and has passed the licensing requirements in the state in which they practice. Most states require a licensed Psychologist to have two years of supervised practice and to pass a licensing exam. Each licensed Psychologist is required to display their licensed number for clients to see. In addition to the licensed Psychologist requirements, ethically, a Sport Psychologist must also have advanced training in sport and performance psychology. This can be in the form of coursework, but ideally should also include supervised work to demonstrate competence in the sport and performance settings. Having a certification from a bonafide organization would also indicate competence.
