Book Title: Problem Athletes and How to Handle Them

Author: B. C. Ogilvie & T. A. Tutko

Book Description:

Despite an awkward title, this book launched the field of applied sport psychology and is part of the reason why Dr. Ogilvie is recognized as the Father of Applied Sport Psychology in North America. I was fortunate to have an opportunity to intern under his supervision briefly during one summer in graduate school. He was a gentleman, a scholar, generous to a fault, and a consummate scientist-practitioner. Without his kindness, encouragement, and support, I would neither be at Penn State nor in this field.
