EFFECTS OF PSYCHOLOGICAL GUIDANCE AND BEHAVIORAL IMPLICATIONS ON THE CULTIVATION OF FOOTBALL CONSCIOUSNESS OF MENTALLY RETARDED CHILDREN
The intellectual disability can be effectively alleviated through reasonable and scientific psychological treatment and sports training. This paper mainly explores the effects of psychological guidance and behavioral implications, two intervention methods for cultivating football consciousness, on mentally retarded children. A total of 32 mentally retarded children were selected from a special education class, and subjected to a control experiment. The pre- and post-test data of the subjects were subjected to statistical analysis and the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) analysis. The results show that both psychological guidance and behavioral implications greatly promoted the mastery of football knowledge, aroused the interest in football, increased the frequency of football socializing, and enhanced the application of football skills among mentally retarded children; the integration between psychological guidance and behavioral implications outperformed the traditional teaching methods. This research demonstrates the positive impact of football on children’s physical and mental health, and provides theoretical support to the treatment of mental retardation in children.
