Chapter

Abstract

The focus on psychological demands in team handball is growing continuously. As per July 2017, using the search terms “handball” and “psychological”, the database Scopus yields 108 results, while the number of results per year rank-correlated positively between the first result in 1973 and the latest results in 2017 (r = 0.549). PubMed yields 33 results between 2003 and 2017 (r = 0.726). This suggests a growing research-interest in psychological factors. The latest literature in sports medicine has established a strong association between psychological factors and injuries as well as return to sports.

Keywords

Return to sports Injury disposition Psychological factors Handball Positions Gender
