Abstract

Something good, we think. Sport psychology provides psychological help to athletes and coaches. To do so optimally, it is important to recognize that sports participants are, first and foremost, human beings with the same psychological needs as other members of the species. Existential psychology provides insights into what those psychological needs are and how they may be met. In this chapter, we will summarize these insights and illustrate their value for sport psychologists.
