Continuing the theme of identifying and then critically examining key tasks that every sport psychologist undeniably performs, we have the intake process.

Intake really is an unavoidable, and therefore very important, component of the sport psychology process. In order to establish a helping relationship with a client (individual or team), there must be a phase in which a relationship is formed and formal/informal rules are agreed.
