The ways in which sport psychology (SP) services are provided may differ based on the general climate surrounding sport sciences (Hung, Lin, Lee, & Chen, 2008), specifi c cultural demands (Naoi, Watson, Deaner, & Sato, 2011), and the certifi cation systems used for sport psychology consultants (SPCs) in different countries. In East Asian countries such as Taiwan, China, Japan, and Korea, varied certifi cation systems for SP consulting have been developed since the beginning of the 21 st century to meet the specifi c demands in each nation. Typically, enhancing athletes’ performance at the national and international levels is the most important mission for the establishment of these certifi cation systems.
