Students will gain a stronger understanding of the social, ethical and psychological considerations regarding sport injury and pain. The subject is therefore ideally suited to students interested in (a) gaining a critical understanding of the environment in which injury occurs; (b) understanding the psychological antecedents and consequences of pain and injury; and (c) assisting athletes, coaches and medical practitioners in creating effective rehabilitation/recovery environments.
