Psychological Processes That Can Assist with Rehabilitation After an Injury

Graham, Tyler
There has been some research on how positive psychological processes can positively affect the rehabilitation of athletes. Following my own experience with an injury I found that there can be significant negative psychological outcomes after an injury in the general population. From this experience I saw the importance of how maintaining positive psychological processes could have prevented negative outcomes that I experienced. To study how to positively affect the psychology of the injured person using a model that looks at how the biological, psychology, and social aspects of the injury affect the outcomes of the injury and rehabilitation. I will also look at motivation and psychological need fulfillment for the injured person that can increase positive psychological outcomes. Looking at those two aspects of injury and rehabilitation I want to create a handbook of psychological processes that anyone in the healthcare system can use to promote rehabilitation and prevent negative psychological outcomes.
