Sport injury is relatively common among sport and exercise participants, and while the physical impact of injury is often easy to recognise, the psychological impact is less obvious. In this free course, Exploring the psychological aspects of sport injury, you will examine the relationship between injury and psychological factors.
You will look at the link between injury and psychology at two distinct points — before an injury has occurred and then following an injury. First, you will consider the psychological factors that may increase the likelihood of sustaining a sport injury pre-injury , and then you will consider psychological reactions to the incidence of a sport injury post-injury. The course will also allow you to examine how sport and exercise psychology can be used both to help minimise the risk of injury and to help people cope better with sport injury rehabilitation.
This free advanced level course, Exploring anxiety, serves as an introduction to masters level study in neurosciences and mental health. Focusing on anxiety, you will consider key issues concerning diagnosis, causes and interventions. You will also learn how to evaluate news items, and to go behind the headlines and begin to explore some of the more contemporary and controversial findings within the field. Examples will cover the genres of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry and scriptwriting. The course starts by exploring formal definitions of panic and panic attack.
These are then contrasted with personal accounts of the experience of panic. It also presents some of the key understandings of why panic attacks happen, and provides an overview of the main ways people can get help and help themselves.

Our findings provide, by means of bibliometric analyses, a broader view of both a historical theoretical frame through the analysis of co-citations and the current stage of research through coupling analysis on organizational innovation. The cluster analysis revealed the streams of research within both sides.
In addition, we presented a research agenda based on the current research perspectives identified where we can look forward. Moreover, it is worth highlighting some points from the results. First, despite the existence of the organizational innovation concept since the s, we could affirm that no accordance exists with regard to definitions for and an understanding of organizational innovation.
Furthermore, one of the clusters of coupling analysis in this paper focuses on the understanding of boundaries, with the goal of establishing concepts for organizational innovation. In sum, the definition is still in construction and in dispute. Second, an issue that emerged is that continuity from co-citation clusters to coupling analysis is related to knowledge; however, we see a clear shift of focus from learning in the past theory path to capabilities in the present and future current studies.
The past mainly highlights the importance of knowledge resource and learning process for innovation; on the other hand, the present relates organizational innovation to capacity and knowledge increment. Third, human resource studies exist for the past and present, proving their importance for the construction of this area of research, especially when considering research on leadership.
Human resources as a consistent area in organizational innovation research is surprising: with the exception of teamwork in new product development, human resources is not a prevalent theme in innovation studies in general. Therefore, we believe that this is a promising area of research and should receive more attention.
This bibliometric analysis had limitations that should be addressed and taken into consideration in new studies. One limitation was that the study included one type of document, articles published in periodicals that represent part of the literature on organizational innovation. Another one relates to some selection bias because of the terms searched. Although the use of the terms can vary in each context, we used the best ones known, and therefore, we believe this to be a minor issue.
As discussed in the paper, the organizational innovation concept is transversal as can be seen in the multiple clusters , and nevertheless, in development, it is what increases the value of the findings presented here. We move a step forward in clarifying the research on this phenomenon and paving the way for future empirical researchers to understand the mechanisms involved in it.
