Sport psychology professionals (SPPs) often find themselves interacting
Wearing Multiple Hats
Sport psychology professionals (SPPs) often find themselves interacting with clients in different capacities, whether it is as a professor, a clinician, or a coach. SPPs also find themselves coexisting with clients in nonworking environments, such as traveling with teams, sharing living space, and in social arenas. The purpose of this assignment is to provide you with an opportunity to examine the complexities involved in placing yourself in situations where you have to wear multiple hats and learn to work and maneuver around professional and social settings. Sport psychology puts you into an environment where you often find yourself flip-flopping between professional counseling in an official setting (office) and counseling in a nontraditional setting (talking in the bleachers). The scenarios vary, but your professional duties do not. For this assignment, read the following article from the Argosy University online library resources: Brown, J. L., & Cogan, K. D. (2006). Ethical clinical practice and sport psychology: When two worlds collide. Ethics & Behavior, 16(1), 15–23. Bearing in mind the importance of confidentiality in crowded scenarios and the multiple roles you need to play, answer the following questions: •What are your opinions about an SPP being in dual-role relationships with clients, teams, and/or organizations? •If an SPP is in a dual-role capacity, how should that individual establish professional boundaries and identify solutions to potential problems, before they become problems? Write a 200–400-word response to each question in a single Word document. All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources. Name the file SP6300_M3_A1_LastName_FirstInitial.doc and submit it to the appropriate Discussion Area by the due date assigned. Through the end of the module, comment on the posts of two of your peers. In your reviews, check if your classmates have formed an opinion on how an SPP should handle multiple-role situations. Do your classmates address and consider possible ethical implications related to their opinions?
