#146 Dr Andy P Hill - Perfectionism in Sport
In this episode I speak with Dr Andy Hill. Andy is a professor at York St John University. His research focuses on the antecedents and consequences of participation in sport and exercise. Andy has written a chapter in the Handbook of Self-Regulation and Motivation. We speak about this chapter and explore what perfectionism is; perfectionism in sport; creating sporting environments that are healthy and less perfectionistic; and what things coaches can do to help athletes with perfectionistic tendencies.
