Sport Psychology: Examples of Current Research
This chapter gives an overview of the state of empirical research in the Federal Republic of Germany during the past 20 years. A trend toward psychological and movement-analytical studies in the area of sport became evident during the 1920s and 1930s (in summary, Feige, 1977). However, an independent scientific discipline could only develop after the establishment of sport scientific courses of study and of professorships for sport psychology at the universities. On the other hand, sport-related empirical research has been more or less neglected in psychological departments, despite the existence of serious arguments, which pointed toward the fact that the subject of sport could be useful for genuine psychological research problems (Heckhausen, 1979).
