Mental toughness and the mental game of athletes are as important as physical fitness and technical ability. However, many talented athletes often face performance problems due to mental issues that arise during competition. To address this problem, an impressive app has been launched by an expert on sport and performance psychology to help athletes, coaches, sport psychologists and even parents of athletes learn about the mental game and the assessment of an athlete’s mental toughness. The app is currently seeking generous community support on Kickstarter with a goal to raise a sum of $16,500, and everyone is welcome to make contributions.
“This App will help facilitate peak performance and mental training of athletes of all skill levels,” said Dr. Roland A. Carlstedt, the creator of this app, while introducing it to the Kickstarter community. Roland is a licensed clinical psychologist, board-certified sport psychologist, and a research associate in psychology with Harvard Medical School/McLean Hospital and Chief Sport Psychologist of the American Board of Sport Psychology. “We are looking to make accessible a scientifically validated test that assesses mental toughness using a smartphone app,” he added. Dr. Carlstedt, the author of Evidence-Based Applied Sport Psychology is now welcoming everyone to help him in raising funds for this app and he is offering several interesting rewards for those who will back this campaign on Kickstarter. He is also giving his knowledge to contributors in the form of personally recorded lectures on the mental game that are sure to benefit those who are interested in the science of mental toughness.
