Abstract [en]

The importance of psychological skills for athletes’ performance has been a major focus in the field of sport psychology the last decades. This study has aimed to investigate the effects of an internetbased psychological skills programme on coactive elite athletes. The programme, PEAK, was based on CBT techniques with six different modules including thoughts, mindfulness and goal-setting. 70 athletes were randomized into two groups, PEAK (n=35) and waitlist (n=35). No significant results were found on the outcome variables ASCI-28, OMSAT-3, mCSAI-2(conf), PSQ and MAAS. However, a trend was found on the subscales mCSAI-2(cog) and mCSAI-2(som). The qualitative data showed positive attitudes towards the programme. One conclusion of the study is that more tailored internet-based psychological skills programmes must be developed and tested.
