Which psychologist should I take to the game?
I have spent most of my life reading books and articles on mental health and sports psychologists, and this week I decided to take the plunge.
However, before I do, I need to know how many of these doctors are certified in psychology, and whether there is an adequate body of research to back up the claims they make.
So I researched the latest research on mental disorders and prepared a questionnaire for my survey.
After a lot of back and forth, I came up with a list of 21 psychologists and psychologists’ credentials, as well as the best psychology books to help you find the right mental health specialist.
I hope you find this list useful, and feel free to leave your questions in the comments below.
