By Chris O’DonnellThe ABC’s Chris Odenkirk has revealed the cost of a program in Australian sports and sport medicine that can help a sports psychologist or sports counsellor to work out if someone is in debt and can help them access a range of financial help and other support services.
In his latest series of “What to Do” columns, Mr Odenkar said he was approached by a sports counselor who was struggling to pay for a new sports therapy course and who said that if they could find a sports counselling degree that was affordable they could pay for the course.
The sports psychologist said she could find the degree for $50,000.
Mr Odenker said the sports couns, who did not want to be named, said the money could be used to help people who were struggling with debt or to help them get back into the workforce.
He said if the person had been in a car crash, the sports therapist could have bought a car, bought an engine and other repairs.
He also said he had no problem with sports psychologists using their own funds for sports therapy, and said they could use it for sports education.
“It could be a sports psychology course for $500 a week, it could be an undergraduate sports psychology program for $1000 a week,” Mr Oderkirk said.
“I’m not going to go into too much detail about that, but it could help people if they’re struggling with their finances.”
What’s the big deal?
That’s just the money that the sports psychologist could use for sports training.
“But in an email to the ABC, the person who said he could not afford the sports therapy said he felt a degree in sports psychology was more likely to help him if he was in a position where he had to repay debts and was in financial difficulty.
The Sports Psychology program is run by the Sports Psychology Association of Australia (SPAA), which is based in Melbourne.
In an email, the SPAA said it was not responsible for the content of the content, which was provided by external agencies and did not reflect the views of the SPPAA.”SPPAA has no knowledge of the information contained in the column,” the SPSA said.
Mr Cramer said the program was “not just about helping people with debts”.”
It’s a chance for sports psychology students to gain skills in the fields of sport psychology and financial literacy, which in turn helps to improve their understanding of the workplace and the lives of others,” he said.
The Australian Sports Psychology Institute has confirmed that the courses are available to anyone with a current sports psychology degree.
