To compete successfully, one must be able to act aggressively in controlled, nondestructive, goal-oriented ways. Conflicts affecting aggressive behavior tend to interfere with competitive success. Depression, fear of success/competitive inhibition, and guilt are among the psychopathologic entities that affect the athlete's performance, whether he be a professional athlete or an amateur to whom athletic competition is a source of recreation and pleasure. It is important that all of those involved in the training and care of athletes be aware of emotional conditions that lead to injuries, both physical and psychologic, as well as those conditions that interfere with performance and effectiveness.
