1. Grant, Kendra. Tackling the Transition: A Life Skills Intervention to Improve College Adjustment, College Self-Efficacy, and Transference of Life Skills of Freshmen Student-Athletes.

Degree: MSin Kinesiology (M.S.), Department of Health and Kinesiology, 2016, Georgia Southern University

The present study explored the effects of a life skills intervention on college freshmen student-athletes’ college adjustment, college self-efficacy, and the transference of life skills. The purpose of this study was to determine the importance of implementing life skills programming to student-athletes in order to smooth the transition period from high school to college. Hypotheses were that participants would improve in college adjustment, college self-efficacy, and transference of life skills from participation in the life skills intervention. Participants included three freshman student-athletes, who played various sports at a Division 1 University located in the southeast. The primary researcher conducted a single-subject B-A-B design to deliver the intervention over 9 sessions for 30 minutes to an hour each session. Results revealed that the life skills intervention was effective for two out of three of the participants on most of the subscales within the three measures: college adjustment, college self-efficacy, and the ability to transfer the skills learned in session to other domains. Advisors/Committee Members: Daniel Czech, Samuel Todd.
