In professional football, the difficulties faced by a medical staff are mostly relational character. The various stakeholders (technical staff, players, managers, property and media) are rated by necessity to the result and this triggers tensions that sometimes favour unethical behaviour at the limit.
The primary task of a staff is to protect the health of the players and to optimize its performance to achieve the best sports results.
Football is basically of the players that determine it and our luck is to be with them when with great performances give us immense emotions!
After my Master in professional Sports Psychology in 2010, I did an internship in A.C. Siena, 2010-2014, where I collaborated with Dr. Zerbini Umberto, with significant experience in top professional football in MilanLab of AC Milan, Udinese, Siena and director of the Center BodyTech Mind of AC Siena. This allowed me to learn the innovative instruments and extraordinarily effective, aimed at increasing performance and managing of mental and psychological sphere own of sport performance.
I use also instruments with a software that calculates the GSR (galvanic skin response) and with particular exercices and short pc games the player could manage better his internal (autonomic nervous system) and mental status during his performances, training and matches.
From 2012 I'm the Sport Psychologist at US Arezzo FA: I have all responsibility of Youth Development of Juvenil at US Arezzo (3rd tier Lega Pro). I work daily and close to 18 coaches (to improve team communication, leadership, cohesion, concentration, to create an optimum team climate, to manage stress and anxiety), and over 300 players from U6 to U18 Team (following them in their mental and psychological development applicable to football).
As Sports Psychologist I've introduced systems for the evaluation of the mental state of the individual and the group of players through the use of relevant instruments and protocols extraordinarily innovative, most of them learned during my internship in A.C. Siena. In particular, the daily search of the existing balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic system and performing tests of attention and concentration, allows to evaluate every day the degree of mental well-being and for regular technical training and physical loads.
I firmly believe in the youth development, young athletes are the future, which is why my work is both with the first team, both with the youth teams.
