With sports injuries having a significant impact on individual and team performance and health, understanding factors which may cause, and strategies which may prevent, sports injuries is of paramount importance to practitioners. This webinar provides an overview of psychological characteristics that are commonly identified as risk factors in sports injuries and some of the associated potential mechanisms. The second part of the webinar will progress to examining the potential role of psychological interventions in sports injury prevention, offering a critical commentary on the available evidence to date, and attempting to answer the question of: “which interventions ‘work’?”. Finally, the webinar will close with offering some future research directions within the area.
