By Enrique Cantón Chirivella and Irene Checa Esquiva


This article presents the assessment and intervention study conducted at the Club de Baile Deportivo Stylo's in Mislata (Valencia) by the team of specialists in sport psychology at the Centro de Psicología Teseo in collaboration with the University of Valencia. It describes the specific characteristics of this sport and explains the intervention programme in which aspects such as emotional control were worked on using such techniques as visualisation in the short, medium and long-term goal setting. Also shown are the data obtained from the assessment conducted earlier in the season, which provided information and guidance for the intervention. These data refer to scores on the factors of the Cuestionario de Habilidades Psicológicas Aplicadas al rendimiento deportivo (Questionnaire of Psychological Skills Applied to Sport Performance) CPRD, (Gimeno et al., 2001), which ranged between the 50th and 60th percentile, with the highest score obtained in the "Motivation" factor (x = 66.63) and the lowest was obtained in the "Stress control" factor (x = 54.42)
