The use of sport psychology to harness and bring out the best in athletes in major competition is not new. In Taiwan, the model employed for the provision of sport psychology services is creative in that it draws upon expertise that resides in universities with sport science capability. Stages in sport psychology service provision and athlete engagement are described. Sport specific examples include the monitoring of heart rate and EEG in pistol shooting, and heart-rate in archery in competition and noncompetition settings are used as entry point evidence base for the sport psychologist to work on, on an individualized basis. Other non-intervention approaches like sleep deprivation and project adventure are also described.
