In recent decades, different sports disciplines have undergone great advances at the educational level in relation to various aspects of sports performance, such as technique, tactics, strategy, nutrition, and physical education. However, despite being present in the discourse within sports communities, psychological training does not yet possess a formal place within the coaching staffs at professional clubs, associations, federations, national teams or training schools.

In an era where elite-level athletes display near-identical performance levels, who ends up gaining the advantage? Teams or individual athletes that possess optimal levels of mental strength.

In this Certificate, we propose working with athletes from a cognitive-behavioral perspective, the overarching psychological theory on which we will rely. We work with Sports Psychology authors that utilize elements of Cognitive Behavioral Psychology in order to modify athlete behavior by revising the way they think and regulate their emotions.
