Psychological Foundations of Sport is an up-to-date, integrated study of both the theory and application of psychological dynamics impacting athletes and sport participants at all competitive levels.
This collection of articles is authored by a team of experts who ensure both the currency and the authority of each chapter. The comprehensive text not only addresses traditional areas of sport psychology, such as personality, motivation, and emotion, but also tackles issues often ignored in other texts, such as aggression, talent identification, and women and youth in sport. Students will learn how sport psychology heightened its role in countries like the former Soviet Union and how the application of psychological information can facilitate the performances of individual athletes, teams, and coaches.
