In this sports psychology podcast, Dr. Cohn helps parents understand a young athlete who has fragile confidence.
Here is the question Dr. Cohn answers in this episode: Sports Parent:
NICK: “I feel that some young athletes think they are “trying hard” but have no clue about what trying hard actually feels like. My son plays hockey and has earned a spot on a more competitive team. He never exerts the needed effort to win puck battles or to take the puck from opponents. He might not be confident in himself enough. Do you have any suggestions on how to promote that high effort level?”
