Research overview <div><div><p>Caroline&rsquo;s expertise lies in the area of the psychological aspects of sports injury. Psychological factors play an important role in the rehabilitation from sports injury and sports injury rehabilitation professionals (SIRPs), such as physiotherapists, have a key role in providing psychological support to the injured athlete. Caroline&rsquo;s research explores the valuable role of the SIRP in addressing the psychological aspects of sports injury and the importance of sport psychology education for these professionals.</p><p>Her work has constructed and contributed to an evidence base demonstrating the value of sport psychology education for SIRPs and has the power to influence the education and training opportunities open to SIRPs. Research examining the impact of sport psychology education on the practice of sports injury rehabilitation professionals is an under-researched area with much of the existing work focused on north American student athletic trainer populations. Caroline has redressed this by focussing her research on UK SIRPs who are already qualified and practicing in the field&ndash; a group who have expressed a desire to increase their knowledge and practice in relation to sport psychology. As an experienced educator in distance learning she has also developed a new field of enquiry within the topic area investigating the impact of distance learning as a delivery modality, which has huge potential for SIRPs who often travel with sports teams and may find committing to face to face training difficult.</p><p>Caroline&rsquo;s work is designed to promote and raise awareness of the importance of sport psychology education for SIRPs and influence those involved in the education and training of SIRPs at undergraduate, postgraduate and post-qualification level in order to ensure that injured athletes receive a holistic approach to recovery that addressees both the physiological and psychological aspects of injury.&nbsp;</p><p>A full list of Caroline&#39;s publications can be found by<a href="http://caroline735.wordpress.com/carolines-publications/" rel="nofollow">clicking here</a>.
