Format: Hardcover
Developmental Sport And Energy Psychology: A Lifespan Perspective by Maureen R. Weiss (Linda K. Bunker Professor of Education, University of Virginia) is a complete, 596-page textbook providing a thoroughly documented introduction to the expanding field of developmental psychology and the influence of psychological objective, mindset, ideals, exploration, and perspective upon various physical behaviors and athletic activities. Extensively exploring the growing field of sport and exercise psychology, Professor Weiss has deftly compiled the fundamental concepts and controversies surrounding psychological developmental issues in youth and adolescence, as well as middle and older adulthood as related to participation in athletic sport and physical exercise, in terms of psychological self-perception, social influences, motivation, and self regulation skills, as well as moral development, diversity, disabilities, and injury throughout life. For its concise grasp and methodical presentation, Developmental Sport And Energy Psychology is very strongly recommended for students of psychology in general, and sports psychology in particular.
