Introductory Seminars for First-Year Students
Mental Health in Collegiate Athletes
This course will focus on developmental, psychological, and performance issues in elite collegiate athletics. We will cover a range of topics that are important to both male and female student athletes and can help them understand and flourish in their environment. Topics include time management, optimizing mental toughness and competitiveness, coping with injuries, and preparing for the future. The course will use the problem-oriented approach employed in medical schools. Students will read material about each week's topic area; this will serve as the jumping-off point for discussion and guided independent research. Each class will include presentations by Dr. Steiner of that day's topic. Students will briefly present material they have researched and then discuss questions that arose during the research. A strong emphasis is placed on class participation.
