Transcript of The Psychological Effect of Dance Injuries:
Appraisals and Emotional Coping
Emotional response to injury
Social support- what is the teacher's role?

Control over injury: preventable?

"Do I have the emotional/social resources to cope?"
Narrowly defined sense of self
Harmonious vs. Obsessive Passion Study
(Blanka, Fortin & Vallerand '06)
Level of Self Worth
1. The need to feel competent
2. The need to experience achievement
3. The need to feel loved and accepted
(W.D. Russell, 2000)
Questions for Further Study:
How can we promote positive beliefs and self efficacious dancers to prepare them for injury?
How can we teach dancers somatic awareness to help them better identify/disclose injuries earlier?
How is anxiety linked to pain perception in dancers? (Gate Control Theory)
“the amount of stress we experience in response to a threatening stimulus is proportional not only the the threatening qualities of the stimulus situation but also to the extent to which
we see ourselves as processing resources to cope with the threat
- Lazarus (1968)
