"THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON SPORTS is a must read for anyone involved in or simply interested in sports. It tells the real story of what I went through and how countless athletes of all levels are still going through now.....unnecessarily. When no one else could, they helped me to recognize how my throwing problems came directly from sports traumas that were stuck in my brain. And then Grand and Goldberg had the knowhow to release it with the miracle of Brainspotting."
Mackey Sasser
Former catcher for NY Mets

"THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON SPORTS is a MUST READ for athletes, their parents and coaches, as well as for all psychotherapists and performance experts. In case you didn't know it, THE YIPS has a clearly explainable relationship to past trauma. All one has to do is take a detailed history of the life of an athlete from his/her earliest childhood, relate that to his/her history of physical injuries and throw in a dollop of shame and criticism from parents and coaches and the reason for the yips emerges with crystal clarity. These facts are clearly illustrated in this compelling, fascinating and ground-breaking book by Drs. Grand and Goldberg. Brain-based principles of body-based memory, neurosensitization and cue-related anxiety from the trauma literature clearly prove that the yips come from post-traumatic stress syndrome. And Brainspotting has shown to be dramatically effective in mitigating, and even healing, this vexing syndrome."
Robert Scaer, MD

THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON SPORTS: Beating Blocks, Slumps and Performance Anxiety for Good! is the ground-breaking book that will change the face of sports performance forever. This book introduces the breakthrough concept of STSD (Sport Traumatic Stress Disorder). Grand and Goldberg have discovered that STSDs are the cause of most significant performance problems. Performance blocks and anxiety, including the yips, stem from accumulated sports traumas including sports injuries, failures and humiliations. The authors also introduce the Brainspotting Sports Performance System (BSPS) which quickly finds, releases and resolves the sports traumas held in your brain and body. An easy read, THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON SPORTS is filled with engaging, informative, inspiring stories. These case examples illustrate how professional, elite, collegiate and junior athletes have been freed for good from this silent "epidemic" of performance blocks and anxiety including: the yips, "Steve Blass disease," "Mackey Sasser syndrome," protracted slumps, balking, choking and freezing. THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON SPORTS provides the answers and the cure for athletes, their coaches and parents about "Beating Blocks, Slumps and Performance Anxiety for Good!" Grand and Goldberg also show how their BSPS can take all athletes to levels they could only heretofore dream of!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A real shift in how we think about sports slumps 30. August 2011
Von Edward H. Plimpton - Veröffentlicht auf
I would agree with the first two reviewers of this book by Grand and Goldberg. I think This is Your Brain on Sports: Beating Blocks, Slumps and Performance Anxiety for Good! represents a real paradigm shift in how to think about sports performance problems and thus a very valuable contribution to the field. So suppose you are in a real slump playing your sport. You have doubled your practice time and your doing positive visualization and other relaxation techniques and nothing is happening. Grand and Goldberg feel these cognitive behavior techniques are helpful in general , but not enough when you are in a real slump. They suggest that behind all chronic sports performance problems is the accummulation of discrete traumas. The case examples they provide in the book are quite convincing. The traumas may be physical injuries or they may be psychological in nature. The authors would suggest that the net effect of any trauma is the same on the nervous system. When you can't engage in the fight or flight response of the nervous system you end freezing and not doing anything. On the playing field, you become inhibited because you are afraid that you are going to be reinjured all over again and in effect you freeze. Interestingly, they find that most atheletes are not aware of any connection between the various injuries they have experienced and their current performance difficulties. Once these "frozen feelings" can find some expression, the sports performance improves dramatically. The authors are very enthusiastic about a technique known as "Brain Spotting" and they also provide some intructions on interventions that can be done at home. The authors make a very compelling case for the importance of obtaining a broad trauma history for any athelete who is in a significant slump, because that is most likely the real issue, not a failure in applying the mental strategies of sports performance. This book is a must read for anyone interested in sports performance.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Must Read For Anyone Connected With Competitive Sports 3. August 2011
Von Earl The Pearl - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
At last someone has finally come up with a method that gets to the roots of sports performance problems. David Grand and Alan Goldberg have created a seminal work of explaining why typical psychotherapy does not work for the deeper issues of unresolved sports traumas. They also make a strong case as to why sports psychologists have previously been unsuccessful in dealing with these deeper problems based mostly on the authors personal experience along with their research. The authors point out that the focus has always been on the actual performance problem, and not the deeper problems that the athlete brings to the field of competition, including many non-athletic related issues. Grand and Goldberg do an excellent job of researching why it is so critical to take into account the athlete's complete life history in order to heal the athlete as a person in order to treat the performance problem properly. In the treatment of sports performance, they make a strong argument for why Sports Traumatic Stress Disorder (STSD) exists and creates Repetitive Sports Performance Problems (RSPP's)! For anyone who is a coach or an athlete, this book needs to be your starting point for increased performance! For the fan, it will help you to understand why a top athlete like Tiger Woods can suddenly fall from the top of competition.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Peak Performance by Therapeutic Approach 7. Juli 2011
Von Pathfinder - Veröffentlicht auf
This is an excellent read for sports fans, coaches, sports psychologists, athletes and anyone in high level competitive (especially physical) sport who wish to improve their game. It demonstrates the possibility of achieving your dream without what might be previously undiscovered traumatic neurological blocks preventing your progress. It demonstrates why 'coaching' alone, although valuable, will miss the point and not remove traumatic blocks to performance. Most of the book is descriptive of various top sports people, their hidden trauma and their achievement after treatment using this approach. Will it tell you how to do it for yourself? The last two chapters describe the therapy in some detail and include self-help exercises that will be of benefit to many people's game. However, it has to be said that to really allow the technique to do justice to your game and remove the hidden blocks, a visit to a skilled 'Brainspotting' practitioner is likely to be necessary. It is so new that there are few published studies about the therapy yet, so read about it here first and decide if a visit to an expert will completely change your game and your life. The approach is genuinely new, exciting and with endless possibilities. I believe this is a must read for coaches, sports psychologists and those serious about achieving the best. Everyone in sports should know about this innovative life-changing approach.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A real breakthrough book for athletes 18. Oktober 2011
Von Jack Singer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Having been frustrated using traditional cognitive-behavioral approaches with athletes experiencing freezing, choking or the yips, I was absolutely thrilled to read David Grand & Alan Goldberg's `This is Your Brain on Sports.' This book packs in all of the information you need to make a wonderful impact with athletes suffering from these recurrent sports performance issues. After reading the book, I was able to put the breakthrough therapy of `brainspotting' to immediate use with my clients and the results were spectacular! I would highly recommend this book and its' techniques to all practitioners who work with athletes. You will be thrilled with your results.

But that's not all. The authors wrote this book so that athletes could also benefit. They carefully put together treatment strategies that athletes can employ even without a therapist. Therefore, I recommend this not just for therapists who work with atheletes, but for athletes themselves!
