Learn How To Effortlessly Do Mental Game Assessments With Athletes & Teams
Mental Game Coach Shares His Entire Assessment System For Learning How To Assess Athletes’ Mental Game Challenges
From the Desk of Dr. Patrick Cohn
Dear Fellow Mental Coach,
If you help athletes improve their mental game and want to be more effective with helping them build mental toughness, but don’t have a proven system for identifying and assessing your athletes’ mental game, I can help you…
Please read this page to the end…
First, a quick story for you…
In the late 1980s, I studied at the University of Virginia under Dr. Bob Rotella. Rotella taught us that assessments or validated instruments were useless when working with athletes in the real world. Rotella’s view was that validated assessments, such as the TAIS, were only good for doing research, not to work in the field with athletes.
But soon, I realized Rotella was wrong….
At the University of Virginia, while working with athletes on my own, I realized that mental coaches could benefit from using a mental game assessment—the right kind of assessment.
After I graduated from UVA, I realized that an interview guide could be adapted as an assessment tool when working with athletes on the mental game. So I developed my own assessment for athletes that would help me understand athletes’ top mental game challenges.
I viewed this assessment as a way to “interview” athletes before they came in for coaching–and to improve organization and speed up the coaching process. Today, I call it the Athlete’s Mental Aptitude Profile or AMAP for short. Now you too can learn how to use the AMAP Assessment system with your athletes…
Without An Assessment Tool, I Was Wasting Coaching Time
Before I developed the AMAP assessment, I was clueless about how to understand the athlete’s mental game strengths and weaknesses. Without an Assessment tool:
- You don’t know athletes’ mental game challenges until you meet with them.
- You are left to use valuable coaching time because you are forced to use an interview approach.
- You are less organized without one.
- You can’t prepare any follow up questions or a coaching plan.
- You are unsure where to start the mental coaching process.
- Athletes are less prepared to discuss their mental game.
- You can’t track their progress because you don’t have a baseline.
I was was shooting in the dark early in the coaching process…. I wasted a lot of valuable time trying to understand my athletes’ needs using an interview approach. When in fact, I could have used that time more efficiently if I had more information starting the coaching relationship.
I Didn’t Want to Use a Validated Instrument
I searched everywhere to find a mental game assessment. Talking to other mental game experts, they also were concerned about the lack of an applied mental game assessment. My frustration drove me to create my own assessment. I realized an interview guide was extremely helpful for doing thorough interviews with athletes. With this idea, I created what is today the AMAP assessment.
Now you can use the exact same assessment
tools that I use along with over 150 certified MGCPs….
“The AMAP Assessment: How to Assess Athletes’ Mental Game Skills”
Dr. Patrick Cohn, Master Mental Game Coach
As a dedicated mental game coach and sports psychology expert, I have studied, researched, and worked with thousands of athletes for over two decades. Over the course of my 25 years working, I’ve accrued an impressive list of accomplishments and credentials such as:
- Working with some of the top athletes in the world including PGA Tour winners, LGPA Tour Winners, and NASCAR winners on techniques to improve confidence, focus, and composure for sports – over 15 years.
- Interviewing many top athletes in the world including Thurman Thomas, Michelle Akers, Ernie Els, Mario Andretti, and Helen Alfredsson to uncover the strategies, techniques and skills that keep these professional athletes at the pinnacle of performance.
- Authoring and producing an extensive library of sports psychology books, videos, audio programs and training seminars. (Visit the PeakSports.com proshop or seminar page for details).
- Earning a Ph.D. in Sports Psychology from the University of Virginia having published more articles than any other students at the time.
- Owning and operating the world’s leading mental training web site with over 27,000 readers and hundreds of current members who are reaping the rewards mental game coaching brings to their performance.
Assess Your Athletes Effortlessly with the AMAP System
The AMAP System teaches you how to easily identify your athletes’ mental game challenges, what mental game issues to look for when reading the AMAP, and how to do a summary of the AMAP. In addition, you’ll also get follow up questions to ask and how learn about how to drill down on relevant topics.
However, the AMAP Assessment System is WAY more than an assessment tool for evaluating your athletes’ mental game. The AMAP has several purposes beyond its use as an assessment tool. These include:
- For evaluation and assessment.
- As a starting place for mental coaching.
- To help you improve your organization.
- To guide the mental coach for the follow up interview.
- To help your athlete start to think about their mental game.
- To assess your mental coaching success after a few months.
- To help you prepare follow up questions to get more information.

What Are Mental Coaches Saying Who Use the AMAP?
“Tremendous confidence after my first session”
“I did the AMAP and summary and the athlete really said it was helpful. His mom emailed me after our first session and said her son came down so excited saying, “mom, I think I can do this!” It was very good news to her but it also gave me tremendous confidence as well since this is my first session.”*
~Wayne Davidson, MGCP
“I now have many new ideas and tools to work with my students”
“I greatly appreciated the AMAP and GMAP assessments because they cover all of the main areas of potential issues in mental training with a new athlete. They are very helpful for getting to know the athlete and structure the mental game plan. I now have many new ideas and tools to work with my students in order to make my mental game programs even more useful and enjoyable.”*
~Camilla Dettori, MGCP
“AMAP assessment instruments are much needed tools”
“As a psychologist, I had read theories about maximizing athletic performance for years. What I lacked, however, was a systematic, concrete approach to assist an athlete in unlocking his/her maximum performance. Dr. Cohn’s AMAP assessment instruments in combination with his workbooks on the critical elements and post competition evaluation forms gave me, the coach, the much needed tools I needed to apply my knowledge.”*
~David A. Williams, Ph.D., MGCP
