The ecology of mental skills development in Canadian athletes: person-process-context-time
Štrajt, Martin ; Mudrák, Jiří (advisor) ; Jonáš, Juraj (referee)
This bachelor's thesis examines the development of mental skills in Canadian athletes. It does this by linking Urie Bronfenbrenner's Ecological Theory to the underlying themes of sport psychology. In the literature review section, chapters on motivation, specific mental strategies, talent perception, athlete development and education, and the Canadian context are developed in addition to the person-process-context-time model. The thesis offers various connections between the theories and emphasizes certain factors that most influence an athlete's personality and development. At the end of the theoretical section, an overview of several Canadian projects that influence the Canadian sport context is offered. The content of the practical section is qualitative research that examines the development of mental skills in Canadian university athletes. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews and then evaluated through thematic analysis. The results of the research offer an overview of the themes related to motivation, the process of mental skills training and the associated role of sport psychology, followed by the characteristics and mind-set of the athletes, and finally the athlete's environment.

Perfectionism and eating disorders among professional ballet and contemporary dancers
Bartoš, Josef ; Štěrbová, Zuzana (advisor) ; Mudrák, Jiří (referee)
Compared to the general population, professional dancers are more prone to higher levels of perfectionism and a higher prevalence of eating disorders due to the high emphasis on the physical aspects of the individual. The aim of this thesis was to compare the prevalence and correlation of perfectionism, eating disorders and well-being in the genres of classical and contemporary dance. To this end, quantitative research was conducted on a sample of 109 probands (74 females, 35 males). Classical and contemporary dance probands did not differ significantly in perfectionism nor eating disorders. However, for the total sample (without distinguishing the genre), a moderate positive correlation (r = .32, p = <.001) was found between perfectionism and eating disorders and a weak negative correlation (r = -.23, p = .02) between perfectionism and well-being. The tested mediation model of the relationship between perfectionism and well-being mediated by eating disorders did not reach statistical significance (β = -.08, SE = .04, p = .43). Although no significant differences were found between the classical and contemporary dance groups, the correlations found are consistent with the results of previous research and suggest the importance of developing and applying prevention programs in the professional dance...

Štirská, Lucie ; Tichotová, Sylvie (advisor) ; Mudrák, Jiří (referee)
This bachelor's thesis examines the impact of anorexia nervosa in adolescents on family resilience, specifically its dynamics and development both during and after treatment.

The chapter on anorexia nervosa includes diagnostic criteria, aetiology, risk factors and the relationship of the disease to family and family functioning. Family resilience defines its status from individual resilience and is described according to the FAAR model. The final part of the paper focuses on identifying patterns and factors that families build and apply to increase their level of resilience and suggests their development and application in treatment. The proposed research aims to monitor the development and dynamics of family resilience during and after treatment of a child with anorexia nervosa in selected families. It is a qualitative research conducted through semi-structured interviews that will be coded using the IPA (Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis) method. The motivation for the research is to improve and...

The thesis focuses on performance motivation and its connection to burnout syndrome among top athletes. We described the performance motivation in terms of 3 theories from which the goal of the work subsequently resulted.

The data collection was conducted using a questionnaire survey including Sport motivation Scale (SMS), Athlete Burnout Questionnaire (ABQ), Perception of Success Questionnaire (POSQ) and Dweck Mindset Instrument (DMI). The research set consisted of 115 elite athletes (73 women and 42 men), with an age average of 22.4 years. Subsequently, the data were statistically evaluated and analyzed by Pearson correlation and regression analysis in the SPSS - 23 program. In the research part, 5 hypotheses were examined in turn. The Pearson correlation results showed statistically significant associations between intrinsic motivation (Intrinsic), task/competition orientation (Task) and ego (Ego) and Burnout syndrome. In addition, 3 predictors of Burnout syndrome were found, namely: Type of sport and kinds of motivation Intrinsic and Integrated. From practical perspective, the results may contribute to better understanding of Burnout syndrome and the...
