Summary "This third edition of Exploring Sport and Exercise Psychology retains the focus of its predecessors, providing an overview of the field of sport and exercise psychology, connecting theory and practice, and discussing important practical issues related to credentialing and training. However, coverage of key areas such as assessment, diversity (with a focus on work with diverse groups, including master competitors), and international concerns has been expanded. New authors add fresh points of view to the topics covered, and current references and examples have been added to enrich this edition. We hope that this new edition will provide readers with a strong foundation in sport and exercise psychology and serve as a springboard for further exploration of the field"--Preface.
