LINDERN, Daniele et al. Impact of a psychological intervention for adolescent football athletes. Contextos Clínic [online]. 2017, vol.10, n.1, pp. 60-73. ISSN 1983-3482.

This study aimed to develop an intervention based on the Cognitive- Behavioral Therapy and Positive Psychology for high performance soccer athletes, aged between 15 and 16 years. Twenty athletes from the youth teams of a soccer club in the South Region of Brazil were allocated in an intervention group (n =10) and a comparison group (n=10). Both groups were evaluated before and after the intervention with measures of social and coping skills, anxiety, life satisfaction and positive and negative affects. The comparison group did not undergo any form of intervention. The athletes in the intervention group showed significant differences in the coping skills: "Performance under pressure," "Confidence" and "Freedom from concerns" and significant increase in the overall frequency of social skills and the ability "Emotional approach" after intervention. There was no significant difference between the intervention group and the comparison group after the intervention - in any of the variables. The importance of preventive interventions focused on health promotion for soccer players is emphasized in the discussion.
