By using practical theory, readers can incorporate the basic skills of sport and exercise psychology into both their professional and personal experiences.

Psychological Dynamics of Sport and Exercise, Third Edition, builds on information presented in previous editions with revised content and new research that is more relevant to current practice. Emphasis is placed on sport and exercise psychology concepts as they apply to three key areas of sport science professions: physical education teaching and coaching; exercise instruction and fitness leadership; and sports medicine, rehabilitation, and athletic training. By focusing on these settings, readers will understand how psychology concepts are integral to real-world situations outside of the classroom.

Through this text, sport and exercise psychology will come alive for students as they prepare for their professional lives. This new edition encourages learning with the following features:

-Expanded sections on cognitive skills, participation motivation, emotion, and cultural diversity that emphasize recent areas of interest in sport and exercise psychology

-Updated references throughout the book that are designed to keep readers on top of a fast-growing field

-New case studies at the end of each chapter that allow students to immediately apply the content in real-world coaching, physical education, fitness instruction, and sport rehabilitation settings

-Distinct research and application boxes that will help students tie theory with professional practice

-Chapter summaries, review questions, and annotated recommended readings that aid comprehension of material and direct students to additional resources
Psychological Dynamics of Sport and Exercise, Third Edition, is organized into five parts representing major topics that may be found in a sport and exercise psychology curriculum. Part I provides an overview of sport and exercise psychology. The section presents a framework for the psychological factors related to sport and exercise with chapters covering the scope, historical development, and current approaches to sport and exercise psychology.

Part II focuses on the individual and includes chapters addressing personality, attention and cognitive skills, and self-perceptions. In part III the discussion turns to motivation. These chapters address behavioral approaches, social-cognitive theories and models, motivational orientation, intrinsic motivation, and lifestyle physical activity. Part IV goes beyond competitive anxiety to include a wider range of emotions and physical activity settings. Part V explores the individual in relation to others. This section on social processes contains chapters on social influence, social development, group dynamics, gender, and cultural diversity.

Throughout the text, research findings, theories, and themes are pulled together to provide guidelines for professional practice. Psychological Dynamics of Sport and Exercise, Third Edition, provides readers with updated information in both exercise and sport psychology that they can use as they move into or continue professional practice.
